Attention 405 Fwy Commuters, More Car Pool Lane Construction Ahead
Just as one project on the 405 Freeway completes, another one is set to begin. A $1 billion project--partially funded by bonds--will take 10 northbound miles--between the 10 and 101 freeways--and bring car pool lanes to them, saving 10 minutes of travel time in the Sepulveda Pass, according to the Daily News.
Three bridges will be replaced while 20 on- and off-ramps will be realigned. 20 overpasses will be widened and 18 miles of new sound walls will go up.
Yes, traffic will be impacted here and there through 2013, when the project should be completed. And when finished, there will be a network of car pool lanes down to Orange County. Constructions starts in January, but preparations will begin in December.
