Expo Line construction will close parts of National Boulevard and Exposition Boulevard this summer.


Summer is here and that means outdoor music festivals. First up this Saturday, Pasadena's free and all-ages Make Music Pasadena is bringing more than 100 bands at 25 stages and some road closures along with it.

Several blocks along Colorado Boulevard and Raymond Avenue will be closed from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Take the Pasadena ARTS shuttle to get around from venue to venue. 

For drivers in Pasadena on Saturday, consider taking Del Mar Boulevard or Walnut Street for east-west travel and Orange Grove Boulevard and Lake Avenue for north-south travel. City parking lots may be especially harder to access — so consider Gold Line or the bus if you can. 

Meanwhile, Expo Line construction continues in Culver City and Palms. Starting this week, all lanes on Expo ROW at National Boulevard between Palms Boulevard and Clarington Avenue —  near the 10 Freeway — will be closed 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays. Westbound National Boulevard will also be closed between Palms and Clarington. 

More overnight street and ramp closures are in effect at the Sepulveda Pass. From May 31 to June 14, 10p.m. to 5 a.m., Wilshire Boulevard will be closed from Sepulveda Boulevard to the southbound 405 on and off-ramps. Take Federal Avenue to Ohio Avenue to get back onto Sepulveda and avoid the construction.
