Going to John Wayne Airport from the 55 Freeway will be a lot tougher this weekend.
Caltrans is closing the southbound 55 connector to the southbound 405 Freeway between 10 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 7, and 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 10. The closure is for construction work to reinforce the pavement on the connector, the agency said in a press release.
The agency is recommending drivers detour the closure by going northbound on the 405, taking the Bristol Street off-ramp and turning left. Drivers then can turn right to take the 405 southbound on-ramp, Caltrans said.
The schedule is subject to change. Drivers can check Caltrans’ social media accounts for updates.
