More overnight closures are planned beginning tomorrow night on the San Diego (405) Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass as work continues on a $1.2 billion improvement project.
The northbound freeway will be closed from Getty Center Drive to Ventura Boulevard Friday and Saturday nights as crews continue to work on rebuilding the Mulholland bridge across the 405.
Some freeway ramps in the area could begin closing as early as 7 p.m. both nights, and some lanes could be blocked beginning at 10 p.m. All northbound lanes will be closed at midnight, but the closures should be lifted by 5 a.m.
The southbound lanes between the Ventura (101) Freeway and Getty Center Drive will be closed Monday and Tuesday nights. Southbound closures are also planned on the nights of March 12 and 13.
According to Metro, which is overseeing the project, Sepulveda Boulevard will remain open during the freeway closures and will be available as an alternate route.
The project will add carpool lanes to the freeway and make other improvements, including the reconstruction of major bridges over the 405 in the Sepulveda Pass. The overall project is scheduled to be completed next year.
