2010-12-07 · By Editor
Motorists who use West Ocean Boulevard to travel between downtown Long Beach and San Pedro or Terminal Island will be directed to alternate routes as crews work to resurface the roads on two consecutive weekends in December. Expect traffic delays.
The resurfacing project will happen just west of the World Trade Center and on the Ocean Boulevard Bridge over the Los Angeles River.
Eastbound lanes will be closed beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, December 10, through 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 12. Traffic from San Pedro and Terminal Island into downtown Long Beach will be rerouted south through the harbor area.
Westbound lanes will be closed beginning at 8 p.m. on Friday, December 17, through 8 p.m. Sunday, December 19. Traffic from downtown Long Beach to San Pedro and Terminal Island will be rerouted north along Shoreline Drive.
There will be detour signs and traffic controls for the alternate routes.
Trucks, such as those that travel to and from the Port of Long Beach, are not allowed downtown and will not be affected by the roadway closures.
The project will repair and upgrade the roadway to restore a smooth driving surface for motorists. The weekend closures were selected to minimize the impact on weekday commuter traffic.
The project is being managed by the Harbor Department and coordinated through the Long Beach Public Works Department.
