The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has reopened I-10, weeks earlier than the original estimate for repairs.
Traffic is now flowing on five lanes in each direction between Alameda Street and the East Los Angeles interchange, ahead of the Monday morning commute and before the Thanksgiving holiday, reducing the disruption to Los Angeles commuters.
The westbound I-10 Alameda Street off-ramp remains temporarily closed while repair work continues following a November 11 fire under the elevated freeway.
The reopening, eight days since the fire, comes far ahead of the original project schedule and was made possible because of the around-the-clock efforts of crews and engineers on and off-site, better-than-expected structural testing results, rapid debris removal, and close coordination between state, local, and federal government officials to safely expedite repairs of a major freeway that is a critical backbone to the American and global economy.
The public should plan for intermittent lane closures on I-10. Caltrans recommends considering public transit as a commute alternative.
