210 Freeway Closure This Weekend Means Detours

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.

To accommodate filming of the feature film The Hangover, "a three-mile section of the eastbound Foothill (210) Freeway, east of the Interstate 15 interchange, is closed during daylight hours Saturday and Sunday," reports If this affects your drive, you will be able to find out what the detour routes are via notices posted on area streets. Although the filming is taking part under the auspices of a state-level plan to keep film and television productions local, people like the Mayor of Rialto are worried the freeway closure will negatively affect local businesses. According to the report, the city was not notified of the 210 closure until Thursday.
