The 10 Freeway will reopen by next week, California Governor Gavin Newsom said during a press conference Thursday. "One thing we can guarantee you is we will be open, five lanes in both directions, at the latest, Tuesday of next week," Newsom said. Newsom credited the tireless and continuous work of repair crews who have been working around the clock to get the busy roadway back open to traffic.
"With the extraordinary work of the men and women you see behind me, the carpenters, laborers, teamsters, the cement masons, 32 carpenters on site in the last 24 hours ... they got ahead two days on the debris removal allowed moving more quickly to retrofit the structure you see behind me," Newsom said.
