Last week it was announced that beginning January 12th and lasting three years, Caltrans and Metro would be embarking on the final phases of putting in a carpool lane, among other freeway fixes, between the 10 and 101. Caltrans this week announced specifics about what to expect next week and it is a full nighttime closure.

All northbound lanes of the 405 between National and Wilshire will be shut down between midnight and 5 a.m. throughout next week, according to the state department. Intermittent closures will follow through the next eight weeks.
