California: FIX THE 10: Angelenos Can Now Watch Real-Time Progress as Around-The-Clock Repairs Continue To Re-Open I-10
The Californer/10261589

~ Residents of Los Angeles can now watch the repairs on the 10 Freeway in real-time, thanks to the closely coordinated efforts of state, federal, and local governments. Governor Newsom has directed Caltrans to install multiple cameras on the repair site, allowing citizens to view the progress of the repairs.

The fire caused less structural damage than anticipated, meaning only seven rows of pillars under the elevated freeway are being shored up instead of fourteen. To shore up these pillars, crews are using large steel beams and heavy wooden posts that stretch over a mile if placed end to end. Hydraulic jacks capable of lifting 100 tons are also being used to place these beams and posts.

The Governor has announced that all lanes of traffic will be re-opened by early next week. However, only the westbound I-10 Alameda Street off-ramp will remain closed as it is being used as a staging area for crews who will continue working at the location.

In addition to repairs, Caltrans is carrying out maintenance on the traffic-free roadway while it is closed. This includes sweeping, litter removal, painting over graffiti, repairing railings and broken concrete, and cleaning drains and culverts.

Residents can visit for updates and alternate routes while repairs are ongoing around-the-clock. With this urgent all-of-government approach to fix the 10 Freeway, Angelenos can expect all lanes to be open by early next week.
