INTERSTATE 710

Interstate 710 is a frequent location for traffic accidents involving trucks. Interstate 710, commonly known as the Long Beach Freeway, is a very important pathway to the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach. An older freeway, built in the 1930s, the Long Beach Freeway plays a critical role in the transportation of cargo. It runs north-south and seems to follow the pathway set by the Los Angeles Riverbed. It is the most direct path from the port to railways in East Los Angeles, as well as connecting freeways to important railways in Pomona and San Bernardino.

The Port of Long Beach is a chief facilitator of trade between the United States and Asia. It imports and exports more than $100 billion worth of goods each year. This creates thousands of jobs, but also brings significant traffic and accidents to the roadways to and from the port.

The 710, because of the high volume of heavy trucks that use it, along with it’s age, shows substantial wear-and-tear and is in constant need of maintenance. From the start in Long Beach, to the end in Alhambra, the 710 spans only 23 miles. This damage is extremely visible in the few miles before reaching the port. The pavement was not meant to handle the large number of heavy trucks that travel down this path on a daily basis. The 710 has also been a significant source of air pollution as large, diesel-burning trucks sit in traffic waiting to enter the port.

If you have been involved in an accident involving your vehicle on this freeway, we have handled a great many claims arising from this dangerous corridor. Given the shear volume of trucks and the narrow passage, it is one of the most dangerous freeways for vehicle traffic. Call us at 888 752-7474 or Contact Us Page.
