Forget carmegeddon, Pomona Freeway closing overnight for repaving

Forget carmegeddon, if everything works out as planned it could become autopia.The California Department of Transportation will close portions of the Pomona Freeway tonight for “pavement rehabilitation.”

And if you’ve driven on Route 60 through Hacienda Heights and Rowland Heights, then you know how badly this busy freeway needs the work. Fortunately, this $121 million project will begin to address many of the problems facing local drivers.

The corduroy road buffets drivers trying to get to Los Angeles every morning and back to the suburbs in the evenings.

Caltrans notes the route is heavily used by commuters and large trucks transporting goods from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. As a result the roadbed has experienced extensive wear.
