Does anyone know if the 210E on ramp from i5 s truck has been reopened yet? I'm going to Phoenix and I need to get on 210 E to 10E all the way there (legally of course) good thing is I roll at midnight, so traffic should be light. Or does anyone have a viable link that would show me if that exit is still closed?

Ive been searching all over for CALDOT closures and haven't found anything useful yet, thought I'd reach out.

I'm going to grab a shower in a minute and will check when I get back. Thank you all so much

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Check google maps, they usually show closures for construction projects. Picture below is example of Broad street ramp to I 95 south in Philly.

My handy-Dandy Randy McNally says you can use the 511 phone number or more direct for LA at 877-224-6511

Google Maps at the moment (1:15pm PDT) shows the 210 connectors for both NB & SB I-5 are green. Then you're good till exit 22B (entering the Pasadena Zone) EB Road closure till 7pm between Lake and Allen. Other than that it's LA Wednesday afternoon traffic. Blehhh! Add an hour or two.

Crazy alternate route - go North of the San Gabriels: North I-5 to North Cal 14 (towards Lancaster) Over the hill to Palmdale and take the 122 cutoff to Littlerock/Victorville, Right on 138 to Phelan takes you to the east side of Cajon Pass. Coast into Berdoo -> Palm Springs & points east if that's what you're looking for. Google maps estimates this as 1h 35m/94 miles, or 1h32m/78 miles via I-210. If you want I-15, so much the better.

(cool note - Cal 138 rolls right on top of the San Andreas Fault! Keep you seatbelt on!)

Cool tha k you forbthe replies guys, as far as I can see its not by Google, I shall see during travel time. As for alternate route, May is very specific on their routing and frowns heavily upon drivers taking alternate routes unless cleared, I'm going to stick to their routing unless detours force me off.

Looking forward to getting out of CA ive been running around out here for the last week with very few breaks outside of it. If you go with western 11 at May you will basically be a i5 corridor runner as that is where most of their business is...

Good thing is I get to go 48 next month so I won't see as much of it...so I'm told...we shall see.

I'll keep in touch, Moe

I'm sure the above replies are good. The CalTrans page at https://roads.dot.ca.gov/roadscell.php also allows you to enter highway numbers to check for any restrictions, though there is sometimes a short delay for emergency closures: https://roads.dot.ca.gov/roadscell.php Just enter highway number.

You can also call 1-800-427-7623 to get same information from robot.

For accidents and other CHP reports, this is also a useful site, though it may be difficult to guess what region to chose if you are not familiar with them: https://www.chp.ca.gov/traffic (sometimes extensive detail is given for an incident, like crazy woman running along highway, overturned white SUV, OJ Simpson driving real slow, etc. (just as an example)

I just remembered, that CalTrans has an app called QuckMap that is useful if you're doing much driving in California.
