All 60 Freeway Ramps Through Ontario To Be Closed Through This Weekend

For a 55-hour period covering the entirely of this weekend, all of the ramps onto the 60 Freeway in Ontario are to be closed while the freeway’s lanes along that span undergo pavement improvement.
The California Department of Transportation, known by its acronym Caltrans, has scheduled a series of 55-hour lane closures on the eastbound and westbound Pomona Freeway. The project is intended to restore the roadway and improve the ride quality by rehabilitating the existing lanes with pavement that will extend the life of the roadway a minimum of 40 years, only requiring minimal maintenance by Caltrans once completed. Currently, construction is ongoing Monday through Saturday, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., with an enforced speed limit of 50 mph throughout the work zone. 55 hour lane closures ensue the weekday work on Friday through Monday, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., to minimize traffic impacts. Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Signs will be posted. Although this is not a full freeway closure, motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes, according to Caltrans.
