Drivers on Hawthorne Boulevard can expect heavy traffic delays starting tonight.

The California Department of Transportation is working on making emergency pavement repairs on Hawthorne Boulevard between 182nd Street and Redondo Beach Boulevard. Construction work will continue from today through early May.

Tonight they will start actual asphalt removals and paving from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Northbound traffic will be reduced to one lane and traffic across Hawthorne Boulevard will not be allowed. Westbound traffic will also be detoured and Eastbound drivers will have to turn north or south onto Hawthorne Boulevard.
