Monday July 18, 2016
The following closures will be in effect this week to accommodate the work:
- Tuesday, July 19, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Vail Avenue eastbound on-ramp will be closed. Motorists will be rerouted to Potrero Grande Drive, Hill Drive and the San Gabriel Boulevard on- ramp at Town Center Drive.
- Wednesday, July 20 from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Southbound Paramount Boulevard westbound on-ramp will be closed. Motorists traveling southbound on Paramount Boulevard will be rerouted to use Montebello Boulevard to access the San Gabriel Boulevard on-ramp.
Metro is studying two alternatives (SR60 and Washington Boulevard) to extend the Gold Line from its current terminus at Pomona and Atlantic boulevards in East Los Angeles.
The “SR-60” alternative generally follows the southern edge of the 60 freeway and would terminate at Peck Road in the city of South El Monte. The train would run along the south side of the freeway on an elevated track crossing over existing ramp, and would travel for a short distance on the north side of the freeway between Greenwood Avenue and Paramount Boulevard.
