71 Freeway shuts down in Pomona after potholes cause flat tires

Both sides of the 71 Freeway in Pomona were closed Wednesday morning, March 22, after potholes caused flat tires for more than a dozen drivers.

The California Highway Patrol said both the north and southbound sides of the 71 at Valley Boulevard were closed to traffic at around 4:30 a.m. after the flat tires were reported.



The CHP did not give an estimate for when the freeway would reopen.

The closure led to snarled traffic on the 71, from Valley Boulevard to Rio Rancho Road — almost four miles.

Potholes caused a similar closure on the 71 in the same location a week ago — causing flat tires for more than 30 vehicles.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.
