Demolition work on Balboa Ave. Railroad Bridge starts, causing road closures through July

  • Closures of the Morena Blvd. on-and off-ramps will be in place while closures are in effect on Balboa Ave./Garnet Ave.
  • N. Morena Blvd. ramps will be closed during the westbound Balboa Ave./Garnet Ave. closures
  • S. Morena Blvd. ramps will be closed during the eastbound Balboa Ave./Garnet Ave. closures. 

Alternate routes available:

  • Motorists will have access to Morena Blvd. via alternate ramps.
