Westbound 60 Freeway to close in Badlands for 3 nights in Riverside County – Press Enterprise
More nighttime closures are coming to the 60 Freeway in Riverside County’s Badlands this week as construction crews put the finishing touches on the truck lanes that opened there in May.
A full closure on the westbound 60 between Beaumont and Moreno Valley is scheduled for Wednesday, July 13; Thursday, July 14; and Friday, July 15; beginning at 10 p.m. each night and ending at 5 a.m. the next morning.
Riverside County Transportation Commission spokesperson Cheryl Donahue said workers will be painting lane stripes on the highway. The commission has been overseeing the project that added truck lanes and improved the freeway in a 4.5-mile section east of Gilman Springs Road in Moreno Valley.
On the same nights this week, the 10 Freeway connectors to the westbound 60 in Beaumont are set to close.
Transportation officials are urging drivers to take the 10 to avoid the closures.
