Caltrans will close portions of the Foothill (210) Freeway in Pasadena, La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge beginning Monday evening as part of a pavement rehabilitation project.
Residents and businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with the work, Caltrans officials warned, although water trucks will be used to minimize dust during the work. Noise levels are not expected to exceed state and federal regulations.
As part of the project, the westbound Angeles Crest Highway (Loop) on- ramp and westbound Ocean View Boulevard off-ramp will be closed through August.
The following restrictions are planned from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly through Saturday on the eastbound 210 Freeway:

Also from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., the northbound 2 Freeway ramp to the eastbound 210 will be closed, along with the eastbound 134 Freeway connector to the westbound 210.
The northbound 2 Freeway connector to the westbound 210 Freeway will be closed from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
