I-405 80-hour closureThe southbound I-405 will be affected Thursday night and Friday morning and the northbound side will experience closures between Friday and Tuesday.

Feb. 13-14 405 Freeway Closure

Between midnight and 5 a.m. on Thursday and Friday, the southbound 405 will be completely closed between Getty Center Drive and Wilshire Boulevard.

The southbound Getty Center Dr. and Sunset Boulevard on-ramps will begin closing at 7 p.m., and lanes will begin closing at 10 p.m.

The closure will accommodate shifting lanes to the west and restriping to make room for widening work at the freeway median.

Metro suggests that motorists traveling in that direction exit at Getty Center Dr., turn left onto southbound Sepulveda Boulevard, turn right onto westbound Wilshire Blvd. and turn right onto the southbound I-405 Wilshire Blvd. on-ramp.

President’s Day Weekend 405 Freeway Closure

The weekend project on the northbound side of the freeway will involve an 80-hour closure between 10 p.m. Friday at 6 a.m. Tuesday, that will eliminate several other 55-hour planned closures, according to a Metro press release.

“The bad news is that if motorists do not reduce their driving or avoid the I-405 area, multi-hour delays may result,” the release said.

The freeway will be closed between Getty Center Dr. and Ventura Boulevard, with two northbound lanes open and three lanes closed during the day and all five lanes closed at night.

Connector Closures (Daytime and Nighttime)

Metro suggests that motorists avoid the closure and take the 405 northbound off-ramp to westbound Wilshire Blvd., take Sepulveda Blvd. north and return to the northbound I-405 at the Greenleaf Street northbound on-ramp.

During the northbound part of the project, southbound lanes will remain open in the daytime. They may be closed during nighttime hours. Sections of the closure will reopen as they are completed.

The 80-hour closure will allow workers to excavate sections of the future high-occupancy vehicle lane roadway surface and repave those sections.

The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-2014.
