Part of the 60 Freeway in Montebello reopened Monday morning after crews closed lanes for construction work, but the delays are not over.

A gasoline tanker fire damaged the Paramount Boulevard Bridge last week. Half of the overpass has already been removed.

The westbound side of the 60 Freeway is being shut down overnight from the 605 Freeway to Garfield Avenue for demolition of the other half of the bridge.

Similar closures are expected for the next few nights until the work is complete.
