Message from LADOT General Manager Laura Rubio-Cornejo:

The resilience of our transportation system is defined by our ability to absorb major disruptions while continuing to connect Angelenos to their destinations whether it is to school, work, or play. As we saw last year following the temporary shutdown of the I-10 freeway due to the Alameda Fire, we were able to deploy resources, increase public transit services, and work with residents to adjust their travel behavior and keep Los Angeles moving.

This weekend, LADOT is mobilizing to support CalTrans' planned closure of the 110 freeway South of Downtown LA. This is a planned closure which will take place exclusively during the weekend in order to minimize disruption of travel patterns. However, as with any closure, some delays in travel times are likely to occur. The best way to avoid delays and frustration that comes with a closure is to prepare, inform yourself of detours and consider taking transit.

Please see the article below which details the timing and extent of closure. Working together, we can once again show the resilience of our region.



Traffic Advisory

Overnight Weekend Full Freeway Closures Scheduled for I-110 Near DTLA

Please be advised that the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled overnight closures on Interstate 110 (I-110) between I-10 and Exposition Boulevard from Friday, January 26, to Sunday, January. 28. This includes a complete freeway closure both ways on late Saturday night through early Sunday morning, with southbound I-110 reduced to one lane from Friday night to Saturday morning. These closures will allow crews to safely demolish the defunct pedestrian bridge over I-110 at 21st Street. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes or public transit, and detour maps are provided. Please check Caltrans Quickmap for updates on road conditions and closures.

Our crossing guards are placed at schools throughout the city and help provide experience and judgment to help children navigate a school crossing, while also increasing the visibility of their presence to drivers.
