Motorists on the Foothill (210) Freeway between Angeles Crest Highway and just west of Marengo Avenue can expect a smoother ride due to a recently completed roadway improvement project.
The project, completed during two weekends in March, involved replacing concrete slabs that have undergone erosion deteriorated due to years of exposure to rain, wind, sand and heavy traffic, causing an uneven surface on the freeway.
Both directions of the freeway’s No. 3 and 4 lanes received replacement concrete slabs, said Caltrans spokeswoman Maria Raptis. These were the most damaged portions of the freeway, Raptis said, attributing the damage to heavy truck traffic.
