Caltrans Thursday announced the rescheduling of a planned 55-hour closure of the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Sylmar from this weekend to next weekend “due to anticipated weather conditions.”

The closure, designed to accommodate crews doing pavement work, is now planned to begin at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 13, and continue through 5 a.m. Monday, Nov. 16, according to Caltrans.

The weekend closure is part of a series of such closures that will be conducted on the freeway in the San Fernando Valley, according to Caltrans.

Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities.

Included in the closures will be:

— the eastbound 210 Freeway between the Golden State (5) Freeway and Roxford Street;

— the 5 Freeway connectors to the eastbound 210 Freeway; and

— eastbound Yarnell Street on-ramp and off-ramp.

Some closures may start and end later, and all closures are weather permitting and subject to change.

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

The on-ramps and off-ramps, connectors and adjacent shoulders will also be rehabilitated. Overhead sign structures, traffic loop detectors, center median barrier and the guardrail system will be upgraded.

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