What will be the main alternate routes for getting over the river once the Sixth Street Viaduct is closed?


When the Sixth Street Viaduct is closed, 7th Street and 4th Street will be the primary alternate routes. It is anticipated that 7th Street will be utilized more than 4th Street because it has a greater traffic capacity. Outbound traffic exiting downtown will be encouraged to use Alameda Street or Central Avenue to reach 7th Street. Once across the river, traffic will be directed to Boyle Avenue and then back onto Whittier Boulevard. It is also anticipated that public transportation routes will be used as an alternative to driving, including the use of the Metro bus and rail lines.
