On- and off-ramps on Interstate 210 at Polk and Yarnell streets in Sylmar will be closed for up to 45 days for paving work, the California Department of Transportation announced.

  • The Polk Street on-and off-ramps will be closed at 7 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15.
  • The Yarnell Street on- and off-ramps will be closed at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 22.

Residents and local businesses located near the freeway may experience noise, vibrations, and dust associated with construction activities.

The closure of the ramps will provide additional room for crews to pave the far-right lane. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes. All closures are weather permitting and subject to change. Drivers are encouraged to check traffic conditions before leaving for their destination by visiting the Caltrans Quickmap.

The work on I-210 is part of a $135.5 million project replacing all lanes of I-210 with new pavement from Wheatland Avenue to Interstate 5. This project is funded by the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. Overhead sign structures, traffic loop detectors, the center median barrier, and the guardrail system are also being upgraded by this project.

Caltrans reminds drivers to be “Work Zone Alert” and to “Slow for the Cone Zone.”
