ARCADIA — All eastbound lanes of the 210 Freeway in Arcadia will be shut down overnight Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate construction of the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Project, officials said.
In addition to the eastbound lanes of the freeway, the closure, scheduled from 9:30 p.m. Wednesday through 5 a.m. Thursday, will also affect the Rosemead Boulevard, Michillinda Boulevard and Baldwin Avenue on-ramps, Metro Gold Line officials said in a written statement.
Partial lane closures will begin at 9:30 p.m., with up to three lanes to be closed atby 10 p.m. and the full closure to begin at 11 p.m., officials said. The closure will end at Santa Anita Avenue.
Authorities suggested motorists take Foothill Boulevard as a detour around the closure.
During the closure, crews will pour concrete for a bridge deck, “which will form the surface of a bridge over which rail tracks will eventually be installed,” according to the statement.
The work is part of a project to extend Metro Gold Line service from Pasadena to Azusa.
