As you get back into the daily grind of work and commuting, so are construction projects on the freeways this weekend. Yep, that means closures.

One of the bigger closures that may affect your commute this weekend is the longterm West County Connectors project, which tends to close the 22, 405 and 605 freeways and ramps between Orange and Los Angeles counties. 

The closures are scheduled to happen nightly from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. through Saturday. Here's what's closing this weekend:

The map below details the closures, including what ramps will be affected and available detours.
