Construction workers will conduct "swarm maintenance" this weekend when Caltrans closes portions of the Hollywood-Harbor freeway interchange for six hours -- a project that might cause delays Sunday near downtown Los Angeles.
Workers will deploy between 6 a.m. and noon Sunday at the interchange of the 101 and 110 freeways between Third Street and Wilshire Boulevard. The project includes safety improvements and routine bridge inspections on the four-level interchange.
Caltrans officials described the project as "condensing several weeks of work into six hours." About 300 workers are assigned to the project.
The project also involves painting over the "Eye on '84" mural that adorns a freeway wall. The mural has been repeatedly vandalized, according to Caltrans officials.
The mural, created to celebrate the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, will be relocated, officials said.
