Roadway Closure on Figueroa Planned For Upcoming Weekend

The SR-134 Ventura Freeway ramps will also be closed during the work.

North Figueroa Street from Colorado Boulevard to the city limits at Scholl Canyon Road will be closed for roadwork this coming weekend, as will the SR-134 Ventura Freeway on and off ramps.

According to Nate Hayward, field deputy for Council District 14, the closures are scheduled to take place between 5 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 9 and Sunday, March 10.

Parking will also be prohibited in those areas during work hours.

A Bureau of Street Services press release states that the work will comprise removing the roadway's existing layer of asphalt and resurfacing.

Those with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the supervisor on the project site or call (213) 485-5561. Residents may also contact Council District 14's Eagle Rock office at (323) 254-5295.

Hey, a natural experiment for the neighborhood: will this, or won't this, help or hurt business; or will it be business neutral? Will this help or hurt noise levels on Fig.? Will it make the street safer? Or will there be fewer cars and more speeding? You predictions below:

Thank you for the heads up! I'd like to think that some fresh asphalt will quiet Fig a bit. Most of the road noise in that area comes from the 134 between San Rafael and Figureroa. It would be awesome if that bit could get paved too some time. On a side note, I'd like to think that Pasadena and Glendale cities were chipping in on the cost of this weekends resurfacing. Their trash trucks utilize this part Eagle Rock on a daily basis.
