Temporary Night Closures on the Westbound I-10 Freeway Between Cloverfield Off-Ramp and Lincoln On-Ramp

The westbound I-10 freeway will be temporarily closed for a signage replacement project starting Monday, December 5. Closures will affect the freeway between the Cloverfield Boulevard off-ramp and the Lincoln Boulevard on-ramp, including the 20th Street on-ramp. Cars will be re-routed off and back onto the freeway between the hours of 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. as shown in the detour map below. This detour will be in place for three consecutive weeknights, December 5 – 7, and a few additional weeknights before the Christmas holiday. Additional dates will be shared at www.smgov.net/kbug and on Twitter using #KBUG when they are set.

The purpose of this project is to replace signage along the State of California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) highway and arterial surface streets within the City of Santa Monica. The improved signage is intended to prevent last minute weaving at ramps, improve lane assignments, and reduce congestion through efficient lane utilization. The closure is needed to hoist large signage over travel lanes. The evening hours were selected to mitigate traffic impacts and daytime access.

Electronic signage and the California Highway Patrol will direct westbound motorists to exit the freeway at Cloverfield Boulevard and detour on Olympic Boulevard to the Lincoln Boulevard on-ramp. Additional traffic control measures will be in place to ensure the safety of motorists and workers.

The City will work to minimize this inconvenience by re-opening the freeway to traffic as soon as possible. For more information on this project, see the staff report.

When: Monday, December 5 – Wednesday, December 7

Where: Westbound Santa Monica Freeway (I-10) between the Cloverfield Boulevard off-ramp and the Lincoln Boulevard on-ramp
