Nighttime closures of two 60 Freeway on-ramps this week

Two SR-60 Freeway on-ramps are set to close this week for subsurface studies as part of the Eastside 2 Project “SR-60” Alternative.

The Vail Avenue eastbound on-ramp closure begins at 10 p.m. The eastbound SR-60 shoulder and adjacent travel lane closure will begin earlier at 8 p.m.  All ramps and freeways closures will end at next day by 5 a.m.  Motorists will be rerouted to Potrero Grande Drive, Hill Drive and the San Gabriel Boulevard on- ramp at Town Center Drive.

•             Monday, July 25 , from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

•             Tuesday, July 26 , from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

•             Wednesday, July 27 , from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Metro is studying two alternatives (SR60 and Washington Boulevard) to extend the Gold Line from its current terminus at Pomona and Atlantic boulevards in East Los Angeles.

The “SR-60” alternative generally follows the southern edge of the 60 freeway  and would terminate at Peck Road in the city of South El Monte. The train would run along the south side of the freeway on an elevated track crossing over existing ramp, and would travel for a short distance on the north side of the freeway between Greenwood Avenue and Paramount Boulevard.
