The City of Monterey Park is in communication with Caltrans regarding local highway roadwork. According to a Caltrans news release … 

Caltrans has scheduled a series of 55-hour lane closures on the eastbound and westbound Pomona Freeway (SR-60) between the Long Beach (I-710) and San Gabriel River (I-605) freeways beginning in Summer 2020. The closures are necessary to perform pavement rehabilitation work that will extend the life of the existing lanes by a minimum of 40 years and improve ride quality. 

Currently, construction is ongoing Monday through Saturday, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., with an enforced speed limit of 50 mph throughout the work zone. All 55-hour lane closures will be limited to Friday through Monday, 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., to minimize traffic impacts. 

Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations and dust associated with construction activities. Detour signs will be posted. Although NOT a full freeway closure, motorists should expect delays and are strongly advised to use alternate routes. Motorists can find real time traffic information at
