Weekend: DUI checkpoints, road closures and more

Mae Ryan/KPCC


Although the Fourth of July has already passed, there are still plenty of events and festivals in and around Los Angeles this weekend that will impact the area’s traffic.

To ease the Fourth of July weekend congestion, OCTA has temporarily postponed construction closures in Orange County. Additionally, you can expect extra police patrols this weekend to deter people from drinking and driving. 

On Saturday, the Long Beach Funk Fest will make its way to Downtown Long Beach near the intersection of Pine and Broadway at the Promenade. A Long Beach Transit spokesperson said they don't anticipate the festival having much of an impact on area traffic, but the city’s encouraging concertgoers to take Metro (even offering up to 10 percent off on festival merchandise).

Regular construction projects for the SR-57, West County Connectors, O.C. Bridges and SR-91 will resume on Monday, July 8. Check our updated post for new rider alerts and special transportation services leading up to the OC Fair July 12.

Here's a list of DUI checkpoints, construction updates, ramp closures and rider alerts expected  through the weekend:

Correction: An earlier version of this post stated that the DASH bus strike was ongoing. It in fact ended on July 1. Regular service has resumed.
