Heavy Traffic: 10 Freeway Closure
Plan Extra Time for Your Commute
As you likely know, over the weekend, there was a fire in the Downtown L.A. area that significantly impacted the 10 freeway. A mile-long section of the freeway, between the East L.A. interchange and Alameda Street, will be closed until repairs can be made over the next 3-5 weeks. This is putting pressure on the freeway system around Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Please consider closures and alternate routes when traveling to your concert.
Freeway and related street closures
- 10 Freeway between the East L.A. interchange and Alameda Street
- 10 Freeway westbound diverted at Santa Fe Avenue.
- 5 Freeway north and south transition to 10 Freeway westbound 60 Freeway transition east and west to 10 Freeway westbound
- Alameda Street closed in the area
The L.A. Department of Transportation has provided some alternative routes to get around the closure including:
- Exit the freeway at Alameda Street and 16th Street. To detour back onto the freeway, head northbound on Alameda, eastbound on Olympic Boulevard, and re-enter the 10 East mid-block on the approach to Lemon Street.
- Alternatively, head northbound on Alameda, eastbound on 7th Street, and enter the 5 Freeway. All 10 eastbound freeway on-ramps between the 110 Freeway and Alameda are closed at this time.
- Reenter the 10 Freeway westbound by traveling west on Washington Boulevard, north on Central Avenue, and west again on 16th Street.
Take the Metro
For those who can access public transportation, there are Metro stations located very close to our campus including the new Grand Av Arts/Bunker Station on Hope Street as well as the Civic Center/Grand Park station, which is accessible both in the park at Broadway and on Hill street.
More details on mass transit options from Metro include usage of Line 78 (Huntington), Line 18 (6th Street), Line 66 (Olympic), Line 30 (Pico), Line 33 (Venice), E Line train, J Line bus.
Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing you at Walt Disney Concert Hall soon.
