3 eastbound 60 Freeway lanes to close
Three eastbound lanes of the 60 (Pomona) Freeway near Rowland Heights will be closed off starting Friday. Roads will be tight from Nogales Street to Fullerton Road. The three lanes will be off-limits beginning at 10 p.m. Friday and will remain closed until Monday at 5 a.m.
The remaining lanes will also be closed Saturday from 1 a.m.to 5 a.m., so expect a detour through surface streets if you plan on driving late. They'll do the same thing on Monday, Aug. 12, between 1 a.m. and 5 a.m.
This is the third in a four-part series of shutdowns in which Caltrans is working on restoring pavement. The next and final 60 closure in this series is from Aug. 23 through Aug. 26.
Freeways and fires
(The Ortega) Highway 74 running through Cleveland National Forest is open only intermittently as of press time Thursday, and then only to residents. It probably won't be the only road threatened this weekend due to fires. Check KPCC's Firetracker site for closure updates before you head out.
