Beginning Friday evening and continuing through the weekend, a stretch of the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in the Sylmar area will be closed for paving work.

Starting at 10 p.m. and continuing through 5 a.m. Monday, the eastbound 210 will be closed between the Golden State (5) Freeway and Roxford Street, according to Caltrans. Also closed will be connectors from the 5 Freeway to the eastbound 210, and eastbound Yarnell Street on- and off-ramps.

Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities during the 55-hour closure period, according to Eric Menjivar of Caltrans.

The work is part of a $135.5 million project replacing all lanes of 210 Freeway with new pavement from Wheatland Avenue to the 5 Freeway.

Overhead sign structures, traffic loop detectors, the center median barrier, and the guardrail system will be upgraded.

The project is funded by Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017.
