The first in a series of 20 weekend closures related to the Arroyo Parkway Improvement Project will begin Friday night along a stretch of the southbound Pasadena 110 Freeway, Caltrans announced Wednesday.
The first closure -- from Glenarm Street to Orange Grove Avenue -- will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and continue through 5 a.m. Monday, said Judy Gish of Caltrans.
"The closures are necessary to construct the median barrier, and to expedite the construction schedule," Gish said.
The $17 million project covers a section of the 110 Freeway from the Golden State 5 Freeway in Los Angeles to Glenarm Street in Pasadena, Gish said.
"We will replace the existing barriers with concrete median barriers and side barriers that mirror the stonework architecture seen throughout the surrounding communities," Gish said. "Historic reproduction lighting will also be installed."
Twenty closures are scheduled in different sections of the historic freeway, and will take place every other weekend until early next year. The project is scheduled for completion late next year.
