The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Works (Public Works) has scheduled a full closure for Vasquez Canyon Road. The closure is necessary to remove the interim bridge on Vasquez Canyon Road and begin construction of the new permanent bridge.
The date and time of the closure is scheduled is as follows:
- Monday, August 24, 2009, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., both east and westbound traffic lanes will be closed.
