Night closures start today along 405 Freeway through Sepulveda Pass
Portions of the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass will be closed at night for more than a week starting late Tuesday so construction crews can demolish the south half of the Skirball Bridge, part of a larger $1-billion freeway improvement project.
Officials said they will begin to close southbound lanes from the 101 Freeway to Getty Center Drive at 10 p.m. (associated ramps may close as early as 7 p.m.) and plan to have that segment fully closed by midnight. It will reopen at 5 a.m. Wednesday, and then the closure will repeat Wednesday night until Thursday morning.
The same southbound closure –- from the 101 Freeway to Getty Center Drive –- will occur starting the night of July 30.
There will also be full closures of northbound lanes on the 405 Freeway from Getty Center Drive to Ventura Boulevard starting the night of July 26. The same closure will be in effect starting the nights of July 27, July 31, and Aug. 1, 2 and 3.
The Skirball Bridge will also be closed starting the nights of July 30 through Aug. 3 from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
