55-Hour Closure Of All Eastbound 210 Freeway Lanes Planned Near I-5

A 55-hour closure of all eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway near the I-5 is planned for Friday evening into Monday morning, officials said. 

The complete closure of the eastbound 210 Freeway is set to begin at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 18 to 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 21, according to the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans).

All eastbound lanes are closed from the I-5 to Roxford Street, according to the department.

“Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities,” said a statement from Caltrans.


The suggested detour for the closure is using Roxford Street through Sylmar, which runs in between the 210 Freeway and the I-5, according to Caltrans.

Traffic is expected to be impacted in the region, with Caltrans advising motorists to allow more time while traveling. 

The work on I-210 is part of a $135.5 million project replacing all lanes of I-210 with new pavement from Wheatland Ave to I-5. The on- and off-ramps, connectors and adjacent shoulders will also be rehabilitated. 

Overhead sign structures, traffic loop detectors, center median barrier, and the guardrail system will be upgraded. This project is funded by Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, according to Caltrans. 

In addition to the closure planned this week, three more 55-hour closures are planned for the eastbound 210 Freeway from the I-5 to Roxford Street. 

Friday, Oct. 2, at 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 5

  • I-5 connector to eastbound I-210

All closures are weather permitting and subject to change, according to Caltrans.

Some closures may start and end later. Motorists should expect delays and are encouraged to check traffic conditions before leaving for their destination by visiting the Caltrans Quickmap
