The visible progress on the Lindero Canyon/101 freeway overpass overpass is headed towards its next stage in the next couple of weeks — ones that will require closures of the 101 traffic, and have it be re-routed off and back on the freeway in the late night hours. Lane closures will start after 8pm, and by midnight each of the nights, there will be a full closure in one direction of the 101.
The closures will take place each night Mon-Fri for the next two weeks. See City’s press release for full details.
RECONSTRUCTION OF THE LINDERO CANYON/101 FREEWAY OVERPASS TO FORCE TEMPORARY LATE NIGHT AND EARLY MORNING CLOSURES OF 101 FREEWAY
Reconstruction of the Lindero Canyon Road/101 freeway overpass will force a series of nighttime closures for the next two weeks. The southbound 101 freeway will be closed at Lindero Canyon on the Monday and Tuesdays of June 2, 3, 9, and 10. The closures of southbound lanes will start at 8:00 pm with a full southbound freeway closure to occur by 12 midnight each night. This same process and time schedule will be repeated for northbound motorists on the Wednesday, Thursday, and Fridays of June 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, and 13. The 101 Freeway will be fully open by 6:00 am each day.
Southbound motorists will be detoured off the freeway at Westlake Boulevard with northbound vehicles detoured at Reyes Adobe Road. Detour signs will be in place to assist drivers with a return to the 101 freeway. Traffic on Lindero Canyon Road in each direction over the bridge will remain open.
On the first two successive nights and early mornings of the closure starting on June 2, construction crews will be using jackhammers to demolish portions of the overpass as part of the reconstruction project beginning around 11:30 pm. to 5:00 am. Unfortunately, noise
generated by this construction activity may be heard in residential areas adjacent to the work. While the City is mindful of this temporary inconvenience, unfortunately the schedule of work is dictated by Caltrans and the need to undertake this phase of the construction in the late evening and early morning hours is necessary to coincide with the temporary closure of the freeway. Nonetheless, the City wishes to thank the community and affected residents in advance for their patience and understanding associated with this aspect of the project.
