Community: Golden State Freeway (I-5)/San Bernardino Freeway (I-10) Interchange To Close for Swarm Maintenance in East Los Angeles
Hi Bel-Air Association,
LOS ANGELES – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will deploy 200 personnel and community service workers for “swarm” maintenance on Sunday, October 6 in closed sections of the I-5/I-10 interchange from 5 a.m. to 12 p.m. Crews will remove litter and graffiti, trim trees, clear weeds, repair guardrail and irrigation, re-stripe the roadway, re-lamp overhead lights, and replace signs. Motorist should expect delays. Signed detours will be in place.

The closures will occur at the following locations:

Westbound I-10 to northbound I-5 connector
Southbound I-5 to eastbound I-10 connector

Southbound I-5 Mission off-ramp
Westbound I-10 State Street off-ramp
Northbound I-5 State Street on-ramp
Northbound I-5 Marengo Street on-ramp
Southbound I-5 Mission onramp
Eastbound I-10 Mission on-ramp

“Move over and slow down when you see when see crews at work,” said Acting District 7 Director Carrie Bowen.

Generally, crews only have a short closure window within the I-5/I-10 interchange. By increasing the window to seven hours and placing hundreds of personnel into one closure, crews will be able accomplish several tasks all at once.

“With budget and resource cutbacks, we have to be innovative and find different ways to accomplish our mission,” said Bowen. “By placing multiple crews into one closure we were able to make significant improvements to the roadway and landscape, enhance safety, and save on future costs.”
