Commuters Advised to Avoid Temple Ave. Leaving Campus
Commuters are advised to seek alternatives to Temple Avenue for leaving campus, as ongoing utility work near the 57 freeway is having a heavy impact on traffic.
Southern California Edison has started the construction project. The right-hand lane of eastbound Temple Avenue will remain closed between Pomona Boulevard and the 57 Freeway on a daily basis through Nov. 30. Work will often require a second lane to be closed as well, reducing Temple Avenue to a single lane. The lane closures have already resulted in extended delays for those traveling up the hill, away from campus. The westbound (downhill) lanes are not affected.
Alternatives may include the 71 Freeway and Humane Way to the east of campus and Grand Avenue to the west.
