Caltrans announced that both Grand Avenue ramps on the westbound 10 freeway will close for an extended amount of time due to constructing the High Occupancy Vehicle lane project.

The closure begins next Monday, August 15, and will persist through later this year, according to Caltrans. Motorists could experience delays, so they should seek alternate routes and may be directed to detours. Detour signs will be posted shortly.

The High Occupancy Vehicle lane project costs $195 million, and is the last leg of a continuous HOV lane in both directions of the 10 freeway that starts in downtown Los Angeles and ends in San Bernadino County. This section of the HOV lane is from Citrus Street to the 57 freeway.
