Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The westbound 210 freeway connector in Pasadena will close Monday and remain closed during the week through the month of November for construction. The connector will be closed from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, according to the California Department of Transportation.

The closures include the Del Mar Boulevard and California Boulevard exits, so drivers using those exits are encouraged to use alternate routes and should expect delays.

The closure is to allow transportation officials to install permanent lighting to the exit, according to KPCC. The installation is part of a $149 million project to repave a 10 mile section of the 210 freeway.

At least the 6th Street exit for the 110 freeway downtown will reopen soon—L.A. can only make its drivers suffer so much.
