Southern California Edison continues to experience challenges with the underground utility. SCE crews worked throughout Thursday night to restore power to downtown Long Beach. The City experienced periodic restoration throughout the evening and early morning hours. However, outages may continue into the Friday morning commute. We advise commuters to allow for additional time as they travel in the greater Downtown area due to intermittently operating traffic signals. Please drive with caution throughout all intersections.

Traffic Guidance:
I-710 Northbound On-ramps closed at 3rd St. Use 7th St. or Ocean Blvd.
I-710 Southbound Off-ramps closed at 6th St. and Broadway. Use Anaheim or Shoreline exits to enter downtown.
6th Street east of Pine is also closed for SCE work
