405 Freeway closures planned for Friday, Saturday nights
More overnight closures on the 405 Freeway are planned for Friday and Saturday as construction crews continue to work on the Mulholland Drive overpass.
Caltrans said it would close the northbound 405 between Getty Center Drive and Ventura Boulevard around 11 p.m. with some ramps closing as early as 7 p.m.
On Saturday, crews will close southbound lanes from the 101 Freeway to Getty Center Drive, using the same time schedule.
Full closures are expected to be in place by about 1 a.m. each day with lanes expected to reopen by 6 a.m.
Sepulveda Boulevard will remain open as a detour route.
The work is part of a $1.2-billion project to add carpool and exit lanes on the 405 Freeway between the 101 and 10 freeways. The project is scheduled to be completed by next year.
