Desmond Bridge Closure Set for June 14
Repairs to shut span in both directions for 10 hours
June 9, 2015
The Gerald Desmond Bridge will be closed to traffic in both directions from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, June 14, to allow workers to repair and replace safety lights atop the span, which connects the downtown Long Beach area to Terminal Island.
The work to be performed by the Long Beach Harbor Department is needed to comply with aviation safety standards. It is not related to the ongoing Gerald Desmond Bridge Replacement Project.
Motorists can use Pacific Coast Highway to travel east and west between Long Beach and the San Pedro area. PCH can also be used to access the 103 Freeway to reach Terminal Island or Ocean Boulevard west of the bridge.
Detour signs will be posted.
