There photos were taken on the weekend of August 25 and 26, 2007. There was a complete closure of the westbound main lanes
to allow placement of beams for a ramp.
Right now we can still see quite a bit of the original ramps, which are destined for demolition in the upcoming weeks.
The new ramps being built alongside the old ones.
This view looks west along the closed freeway main lanes. Beams were being position for the new BW8 NB to I-10 WB ramp.
On the left we can see the remains of the original BW8 SB to I-10 WB ramp. The concrete has been knocked out of the remaining
