Los Robles Avenue overcrossing in Pasadena. These projects will include replacing medians, barriers and guardrails; upgrading pavement, lighting and electrical systems for the I-210/SR-134 tunnels; resurfacing and replacing distressed slabs; modifying curbs to meet the ADA; installing loop detectors; and restriping. This work will include both day and nighttime operations, and lane and ramp closures.

Finally, congratulations to the class of 2015.
