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.

    This makes me think of the closure of several lanes at where the I-10 overcrosses for originally pipe work, but later freeway expansion. This started in May, but barely any work has been done as for a several weeks nobody was even at the site. Even now there is usually about one person, but usually they get nothing none. It’s outrageous as it is a high traffic area, causing a lot of backup at key times in the day. It’s sad that the people working on the section were hired as in my opinion they seem bad at their job, might just be another sign of corruption in the city of Baldwin Park
