Port of Los Angeles, CalTrans complete Harbor Freeway improvements

The $46 million project is expected to reduce congestion on a highway used extensively by port truckers.

   The Port of Los Angeles and the California Department of Transportation have completed a $46 million project designed to ease traffic congestion and improve safety at key access points to the northbound I-110 (Harbor Freeway).
   Improvements include widening of the SR-47 connector to the Harbor Freeway with an additional lane, and modifying the freeway ramps at John S. Gibson Boulevard. These enhancements will eliminate the congestion and weaving that previously occurred when slow moving, on-ramp traffic from San Pedro merged into fast moving traffic coming off the Vincent Thomas Bridge from Long Beach, the Los Angeles Port Authority said.
   The project also included some railroad realignment  and the widening of two bridges.
   The port authority said the project was completed on time and under budget.
   About $24.2 million of the project was funded through grants. These included $7.4 million from Metro, $13.2 million from the State Trade Corridors Improvement Fund and $3.6 million from a federal Department of Transportation grant. The remaining project costs were funded by the Port of Los Angeles.
   Another project to improve the flow of traffic from the Harbor Freeway is the C Street/I-110 Access Ramp Improvements, which includes the reconfiguration of the C Street on and off-ramps to provide improved access to Harry Bridges Blvd., John S. Gibson Blvd. and Figueroa Street in Wilmington.
   The project is expected to be completed by September, the port authority said.
