Caltrans announced Thursday a weekend closure of a stretch of the westbound Foothill (210) Freeway in Sylmar for paving work.

The westbound 210 between Roxford Street and the Golden State (5) Freeway will be closed for 55 hours starting at 10 p.m. Friday and extending through 5 a.m. Monday, according to Caltrans.

The closure will also include the westbound 210 Freeway on-ramps at Polk, Roxford and Yarnell streets, as well as the off-ramps at Yarnell and Paxton streets.

Motorists are advised to use Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway as an alternate route to reach their destination and to avoid the area of the full closure, according to Caltrans, which advises that residents and businesses in the area may be affected by noise, vibrations and dust associated with the scheduled work.

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. Overhead signs, traffic loop detectors, center median barriers and guardrails will also be upgraded during the project.
