Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, Vice President Kamala Harris and California Gavin Newsom today announced the I-10 freeway would reopen before Monday morning rush hour traffic due to urgent action and collaboration taken over the past week.

“The 10 will be safe to drive on weeks ahead of schedule because of urgent action and collaboration at all levels of government. When we work together, nothing can stop Los Angeles,” said Mayor Karen Bass.

The reopening of the I-10 freeway follows extensive tests conducted by Caltrans to ensure the safety of Angelenos driving across it. The concrete and temporary supports have undergone testing to ensure that the bridge can bear weight safely while construction continues.
