Construction of a new 60 Freeway interchange at Lemon Avenue in Diamond Bar is triggering lengthy lane and ramp closures that will disrupt traffic during several weekends, the Alameda Corridor East Construction Authority announced Wednesday.

Although far from a “carmaggedon” situation, as many as four planned weekend closures in the freeway’s eastern Los Angeles County section will slow traffic flow from the San Gabriel Valley, Inland Empire and Orange County. Drivers will be affected not just on the busy 60, but also on the 57, 71 and 210 freeways, officials said.
