If you regularly take Sepulveda Boulevard through the Sepulveda Pass, it's time to come up with a Plan B for next week.

Starting at 9 am on Monday about 3/4 of a mile of Sepulveda Boulevard through the pass will be undergoing some heavy-duty construction, according to City News Service. During the day, only one lane in each direction will be open. At night from 9 pm until 6 am, all traffic will be shut down. It will affect the stretch of the boulevard between Montana and Church avenues, and this pattern will continue for seven days straight.

Metro's advice? "So head for the 405 … or for the hills."

Contractors will be moving that stretch of Sepulveda to the east and changing its grade so that Metro can build a new carpool line and auxiliary exit lanes on the northbound 405 Freeway. This is all a part of the more than $1 billion project to reconstruct and widen the 405 freeway.

If you live nearby, it might be noisy around the clock: "Dump trucks and excavation equipment will be used, and some vibration may occur during the use of compaction rollers."
