The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) will close one lane northbound and southbound on Lincoln Boulevard (State Route 1) between La Tijera Boulevard and LMU Drive in Westchester from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, December 6th and 7th.

One lane will remain open to traffic in each direction.

The weekend closure is to allow for paving work which cannot be performed at night, as temperatures are too low, Caltrans officials said.

The work is part of a Lincoln Boulevard improvement project that began in spring last year and is expected to be completed early next year.

The project is intended to widen lanes and sidewalks on Lincoln Boulevard in both directions between La Tijera Boulevard and LMU Drive, create four lanes northbound from the current three, and modify traffic signals at major intersections within the project limits, according to Caltrans.
