Authorities Sunday urged commuters to plan ahead to avoid major delays caused by the closure of a stretch of the 10 Freeway in Downtown Los Angeles after it was damaged by a fire.
Metro Los Angeles provided information on train and bus routes, while Metrolink said it was beefing up train service in and out of Downtown Los Angeles.
I am calling on all Angelenos to come together and STAY INFORMED on I-10 closure updates.
We are working around the clock to open the impacted junction as quickly as possible.

Another possible solution, Caltrans noted, is to work from home.
