Another weekend, another round of closures on the 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass to throw a wrench in your nighttime driving.

Construction continues on the major roadway, and this time around, work will be focused on the reconstruction of the Mulholland Bridge, according to Metro.

Tonight, starting as early as 7 p.m., crews will begin shutting down ramps between Getty Center Drive and 101 on the northbound side of the 405 Freeway.

Northbound lanes of the 405 will be shut down incrementally starting at 11:00 p.m., with a full directional closure starting at 1 a.m. and lasting until about 6 a.m., says Metro.

Motorists will be able to use Sepulveda Boulevard as a detour. Metro has detour maps available online.

This weekend marks the start of another major "over the hill" route closure: Coldwater Canyon will be closed for about a month during the daytime Mondays through Saturdays. Fortunately, on Sundays and overnight, the road will have one lane open in each direction, and at no time will the 405 be closed at the same time Coldwater Canyon will be closed.

Metro is keeping everyone posted on closures and other 405-related info on Twitter and Facebook, too.
