Drivers, Beware: Overnight 405 Freeway Closures This Weekend
Those 405 Freeway closures scheduled for last week have been rescheduled for this week, which means it's drivers, beware time (again).
The overnight closures are slated for Friday and Saturday night, weather permitting. The on- and off- ramp closures will begin as early as 7 p.m. those nights, with lane closures beginning at 11 p.m., according to City News Service.
The lanes affected Friday night are those northbound on the 405 from Getty Center Drive to Ventura Boulevard in the Sepulveda Pass. Saturday's closures cover the southbound side in the same area. Sepulveda Boulveard will remain open for those who must travel in the area, though there is only one lane in each direction through the work zone.
Crews are expected to have the freeway re-opened by 6 a.m. the following day.
The closures are necessary as workers are still completing work on the Mulholland Bridge.
Project and closure information is available from Metro.
