Closes Part 
of I-210 Two 

Residents, visitors and 
businesses in Pasadena 
are advised that Caltrans 
will shut down part of the 
westbound I-210 Freeway, 
near Highway 134, between 
Lake Avenue and Mountain 
Street, for 55 hours this 
weekend, beginning at 10 
p.m., Friday, July 15, until 5 
a.m., Monday, July 18, 2016

Roadway pavement work 
is prompting the closure 
this weekend and a second 
weekend as well, according 
to Caltrans.

 The two separate, 55-hour 
full weekend closures on 
the I-210 in Pasadena are 
scheduled to be:

 10 p.m., last night, to 
Monday, July 18 and 10 
p.m., Friday, July 29 to 5 
a.m., to Monday, August 1.

 This weekend’s closure 
means the eastbound 
Highway 134 connector to 
the westbound I-210 will be 
closed during this time. The 
westbound I-210 offramps 
for Marengo Avenue and 
Mountain Street will also 
be closed, as well as the 
onramp for the I-210 at 
Walnut Street.

 Motorists are urged to 
slow down and use caution 
while driving in the freeway 
construction area; to be 
extra alert and to follow 
all freeway detour signs if 
you must travel through 
the area. Motorists should 
consider seeking alternative 
routes to avoid this part of 
I-210 during the closures.

Pet of the 

Sweet Inky (A152822) is a 
twelve-year- old, neutered 
male, black and white, 
shorthair cat. This precious 
cat comes running for love 
and attention the second 
you enter the room. 

 The adoption fee for cats is 
$70 (or two for $85), which 
includes the spay or neuter 
surgery, microchip, and 
vaccinations. Inky qualifies 
for our Seniors for Seniors 
program, which waives the 
adoption fee for adopters 
age 60 and over. The 
mandatory $20 microchip 
fee still applies.

 New adopters will receive a 
complimentary health-andwellness 
exam from VCA 
Animal Hospitals, as well 
as a goody bag filled with 
information about how to 
care for your pet.

 Call the Pasadena Humane 
Society & SPCA at (626) 
792-7151 to ask about 
A152822, or visit at 361 S. 
Raymond Ave. in Pasadena. 
Adoption hours are 11 a.m. 
to 4 p.m. Sunday; 9 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. Tuesday through 
Friday; and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

 Pets may not be available 
for adoption and cannot be 
held for potential adopters 
by phone calls or email.

all pets can be found at
