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.

  • Monday, August 1 and Tuesday August 2: the Paramount Blvd. westbound on-ramp, shoulder and adjacent travel lane closure will begin at  7 p.m. The adjacent westbound travel lane and shoulder will reopen at 5 a.m., while the westbound on-ramp will reopen at 6 a.m.
  • Wednesday, August 3:  the westbound shoulder and adjacent travel lane west of Paramount Blvd. closure will begin at 7 p.m. through 5 a.m.

Closures may also be needed Thursday and Friday nights depending on how the work progresses. We will provide further updates as we receive more information.

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.
