The last significant closure associated with the demolition of the northbound 710 connector ramp will begin next Friday – July 27 – at 9 p.m. and last all weekend until Monday at 5 a.m. The closure only affects a small portion of Pico Avenue directly under the old ramp and the southbound Pico off-ramp next to it. Motorists travelling west on Ocean Boulevard toward Terminal Island and San Pedro will not be impacted.
Motorists traveling east over the bridge will exit on the Pico northbound off-ramp, then turn left heading north. At 9th Street, they can 1) turn left onto the 710 north on-ramp; 2) turn right, continue onto 10th Street, and take the downtown on-ramp to head into the city; or 3) turn right, remain on 9th Street up to Anaheim Street, turn right, then take the southbound on-ramp onto the 710 to travel to the Queen Mary area.
Important note for truckers only: oversized loads will not be permitted to travel on Pico Avenue through the affected area during the closure.
Thank you again for everyone’s patience and understanding during this closure, and during the entirety of this significant infrastructure improvement project. We are pleased to announce we are heading into the final stretch towards completion of the new bridge, which will offer vastly improved traffic flow and additional safety lanes.
