The California Department of Transportation announced that all lanes of the northbound 101 freeway, from Glendale Boulevard to Cahuenga Boulevard, will be closed for a few hours early in the morning for several days, starting Sunday.

Caltrans warns that there will likely be delays, and that drivers should consider alternate routes if they were planning on using the Hollywood Freeway late tonight or early tomorrow morning.

The closure begins at 1 a.m. and will end at 5 a.m., from Sunday through Wednesday. The work on the freeway is for the "loop detector installation," which is part of the nearly $20 million project that is re-paving the freeway from downtown L.A. to Hollywood.

The loop detector installation is one of the final stages of a $19.26 million project to re-pave the freeway, from downtown Los Angeles to Hollywood. According to Caltrans, loop detectors "track travel time information and speeds that reflect real-time traffic conditions." Sounds handy!
