Major closures to impact Kennedy Expressway weekends in June

Get ready for a traffic nightmare. Crews are planning to shut down the Kennedy near Ontario for three weekends in June for demolition of the Ontario bridge that runs over the Kennedy.

The bridge removal will be done in three phases, the weekends of June 13-16, June 20-23 & June 27-30 (weather pending).

The first weekend, the IB Kennedy will be shut down from Chicago Avenue to Grand Avenue with no access to the Express Lanes. The second weekend, closures will shift to the OB side. The OB Kennedy will be completely blocked Grand to Ogden with no access to the Express Lanes. The ramp from EB I-290 to the Kennedy will also be blocked.
