    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.

    Planned Closures:

    • One lane of the southbound Harbor Freeway between Third Street and Wilshire Boulevard between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.
    • Connector between the northbound Hollywood and southbound Harbor Freeway between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m.
    • Connector between the southbound Hollywood and southbound Harbor Freeway between 6 a.m. and noon
    • Third Street on- and off-ramps for the southbound Harbor Freeway from 6 to 9 a.m.
    • Fourth Street off-ramp from the southbound Harbor Freeway from 6 a.m. to noon

    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.
