Members of the Wisconsin marching band take a pit stop before setting off on their six-mile trek down Colorado Boulevard on Monday morning.

If you’re hitting the road early Monday morning for the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Caltrans says expect some detours.

Most of the shutdowns will begin Sunday night. On the eastbound side of the Ventura freeway, the Orange Grove Boulevard off-ramp will close and so will the westbound on-ramp.

Along the 210, Caltrans plans to close the westbound Sierra Madre Boulevard off-ramp. Same story on the other side with the Sierra Madre/San Gabriel Boulevard off-ramp.

Caltrans spokeswoman Judy Gish picks it up now with shutdowns to look out for along the 710, the Long Beach freeway.

“That’s going to be the southbound Del Mar Boulevard off ramp from 8 p.m. on the 1st to 11 a.m. on the 2nd. The northbound Del Mar Boulevard on-ramp from 8 p.m. on the 1st to 10 a.m. on the 2nd. And the northbound California Boulevard on-ramp from 6 p.m. on the 1st to 11 a.m. on the 2nd.”

Gish adds that Pasadena Avenue will be closed from Columbia Street to Del Mar Boulevard today and tomorrow.

Here's more information about taking public transportation to the parade.
