Starting Monday the Gaffey Street Bridge will be closed for renovation for 60 days, according to Councilwoman Janice Hahn and the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce.
Use alternate crosswalks on Santa Cruz Street or 1st Street.
On Saturday, April 30, 2011 and Saturday, May 7, 2011, there will be a full closure of the 110 South Gaffey Street exit from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. to work on the bridge. Use alternate routes, such as the Harbor Blvd. or Channel Street freeway exits.
This marks the first phase of the renovation of the Gaffey Street Bridge, the gateway to San Pedro. The project will be done in three phases. The first phase will include sandblasting, painting and replacement of bridge fencing. It will also include repairs of the damaged structural poles and security lighting on the bridge, which was last retrofitted in 1996.
The second-phase of the renovations will include decorative blue lighting to reflect the nearby Vincent Thomas Bridge. A third phase of work will include new landscaping around the bridge and median improvements.
