Bridge work prompts closures near Ludlow

By Melissa Pinion-Whitt
Created: 07/28/2009 09:55:04 AM PDT

Construction on a $3 million bridge repair project continues today east of Ludlow, resulting in all-day lane closures, Caltrans officials said.

The project includes the repair of girders on eight bridges. One lane will be closed for construction at Haller Bridge, but workers will leave another lane open. The work is estimated to last four weeks. Drivers with oversized loads should contact Caltrans Transportation Permits, (909) 383-4637.

Why is it that the I40 between Barstow and Needles is the eternal ongoing repair project? Or is it my imagination that they have been working on this road and closing lanes continually since the 1980's?

I don't recall this level of repair ever on the I15 or the I10 or.... :)sphss

This all started when Obama was just a little shitter in Hawaii or wherever (you know pre-community organizer days).

Why is this road so in need of decades long major repairs vs other roads?

It is justification for taking over and making Route 66 obsolete.;)

Its retarded. They keep fixing the the areas that don't need repaired. The Beginning of the 40 to a few miles passed Newberry Springs is beaten up pretty bad. And there is one bridge near Essex Rd that is like the whoop section at supercross. Other than that, Stop wasting our tax dollars, and move to more important and needed projects!
