There's a big closure for one of the nation's most congested freeway interchanges.Luckily... it's the weekend.

Early this morning, a pavement crack located on the shoulder and into the number four lane (far right) was noticed on the connector approach bridge slab above Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.

Caltrans will close the northbound connectors to the 101 freeway in both directions for emergency pavement repairs beginning tonight at midnight through 5 a.m on Monday. The Sepulveda Blvd. on-ramp will also be closed for the weekend.

The interchange has won the honor of being the country's worst bottleneck quite a few times.
