10 Freeway closure due to fire

Angelenos should prepare for the closure of the 10 Freeway east of downtown Los Angeles following the damage from a fire

Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass urges Angelenos to prepare for major closures on the I-10 freeway east of downtown Los Angeles ahead of heavy rush hour traffic. California Governor Gavin Newsom joined Bass today to assess the impacted area and provide updates on the damage. The cause of the fire itself is still under investigation.

Because I-10 is an interstate freeway, Bass has been in touch with the White House to ensure that there are no barriers to rebuilding. Thousands are impacted by this issue so it will be treated with utmost priority to ensure the city returns to working order, Bass said.

“I have directed all City departments to urgently respond to the impacts of this closure by ensuring that there is a plan for the hundreds of thousands of Angelenos who commute or live by this incident, and I am in touch with Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, Governor Newsom, and our state partners to ensure that there are no barriers to getting this portion of the 10 Freeway up and running as fast as possible,” Bass said in a recent press release.

“While the repairs are being made, it is my top priority that we provide as much information as possible to ensure that our communities, our commuters, our businesses and all those who are impacted by this are well informed each step of the way,” Bass said.
