The 101 freeway in Encino will be closed this weekend due to bridge demolition

ENCINO, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — The 101 freeway in Encino will be closed in both directions this weekend to allow for the demolition of a pedestrian bridge, Caltrans announced.

The closure begins at 10 p.m. on Saturday and is expected to end at 10 a.m. on Sunday. It will stretch from White Oak Avenue to Balboa Boulevard.

Caltrans said the following ramps will also be closed during the operation:

— Reseda Boulevard ramp to 101 southbound

— White Oak Avenue ramp to 101 southbound

– Take the Balboa Boulevard exit to the 101 northbound

— On ramp from Haskell Avenue to 101 northbound

— Connection from Freeway 405 southbound to 101 northbound

— Connecting from the 405 northbound freeway to the 101 northbound

In addition to the full closure on Saturday, up to three lanes of the motorway in each direction can be closed as early as 10 p.m. on Friday and end at 10 a.m. on Saturday. Two lanes will remain open in each direction during this time.

Drivers are advised to use alternate routes or follow the diversion signs to exit at Balboa, Victory, or Ventura Boulevard.

Caltrans says the bridge is coming down because of its “non-standard vertical spacing.” The bridge will not be replaced.

In the Inland Empire, the eastbound 91 freeway near downtown Corona will be closed from Friday 10 p.m. to Monday 5 a.m. for renovation work. The closure will be from Main Street to Interchange 91/Interstate 15.

Meanwhile, Amtrak and Metrolink train service between San Clemente and San Diego County has been suspended indefinitely due to ground shifting under a stretch of oceanfront track.
