A 55-hour closure of the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway in the Sylmar area will begin Friday evening as part of an ongoing repavement project.

The closure, which will begin at 10 p.m. and end at 5 a.m. Monday, is part of a series of 55-hour closures planned along the 210 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley, according to Caltrans.

This weekend’s closure will affect the westbound 210 Freeway between the Golden State (5) Freeway and Roxford Street.

Also closed will be the westbound Polk Street on-ramp; the westbound Roxford Street on-ramp; the westbound Yarnell Street on- and off-ramps; the interchange from the westbound 210 Freeway to the 5 Freeway; and the eastbound Paxton Street off-ramp.

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

All closures are weather-permitting and subject to change.

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