Eastbound 60 Freeway Closure for Weekend Continues
Half of the 60 Freeway between Riverside and Ontario is slated to remain closed today and into Monday morning to facilitate resurfacing projects, with ``more challenging'' driving conditions on at least one detour route because of people flocking to a show in Fontana. ``It's going to be tight on Interstate 10 and probably Interstate 15,'' District 8 spokeswoman Terri Kasinga told City News Service.
``We're asking people to plan ahead because it's going to be more challenging going toward Fontana, and going through that area is going to take longer.''
The ``Hard Summer Music Festival'' started Saturday and will wrap up today at the Fontana Speedway. Kasinga said the festival is expected to draw 80,000 attendees. ``Look at traffic conditions,'' she said. ``Motorists might want to consider I-210 or the 91 freeway as alternates.''
Resuming rotating closures that began last weekend, crews on Friday night shut down the entire Eastbound 60 between Interstate 15 in Ontario and the 60/91/215 interchange in Riverside, roughly 13 miles. The closure is not scheduled to end until 5 a.m. Monday.
