Plan Ahead: Ocean Blvd. to Be Closed for Gerald Desmond Bridge Construction
As part of the Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project, eastbound and westbound traffic on Ocean Boulevard at SR-47 will be delayed due to two closures.
The first closure, set to take place on June 11 and 12 from 7PM to 5AM, will be a full closure for both eastbound and westbound traffic. The second closure, taking place from June 13 to June 24, will have the eastbound lane closed on those dates from 9PM to 5AM.
When completed in 2018, the new bridge will include six traffic lanes and four emergency shoulders, a higher clearance to accommodate new generations of cargo ships, and the Mark Bixby Memorial Bicycle and Pedestrian Path with scenic overlooks.
The replacement project allows the Gerald Desmond Bridge to remain in use while the new bridge is under construction. The bridge project is a joint effort of Caltrans and the Port, with funding support from the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro).
