Ramps for the Long Beach Freeway at Rosecrans Avenue in Paramount have been closed for one year as part of the construction of the Century Freeway, according to the California Department of Transportation. The closure began Monday.
Work crews will tear down and replace the Rosecrans Avenue bridge over the Long Beach Freeway. Portions of the freeway, both northbound and southbound, also will be widened in preparation for an interchange that will connect the Long Beach Freeway with the Century.
The work is being done by Brutoco Engineering & Construction Inc. of Fontana. The contract is for $10 million.
Completion of the 17.3-mile Century Freeway, also known as the Glenn M. Anderson Freeway, is expected by mid-1993. Its estimated cost is $2 billion.
