Night closures ahead
May 23, 2012
Segments of the 405 will close overnight next week to accommodate construction activities associated with Metro’s I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project.
Preliminary closures of some southbound lanes between Getty Center Drive and Sunset Boulevard will begin around 10 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, with all southbound lanes slated to close from midnight until 5 a.m. Wednesday. The pattern will be repeated with the northbound lanes between Moraga Drive and Getty Center Drive starting at 10 p.m. Wednesday, with full closures of all northbound lanes from midnight through 5 a.m. on Thursday. Traffic will be detoured to surface streets during the closures.
The overnight closures are the latest to hit as the 405 Project pushes towards completion in 2013. When finished, the project will add a 10-mile northbound carpool lane, widen existing ramps and bridges, and improve the supporting infrastructure of the notoriously congested freeway. Keep tabs on the project with the 405 Report.
