405 Freeway in Sepulveda Pass closed overnight


The southbound 405 Freeway between the 101 Freeway and Getty Center Drive will be closed beginning at 11 p.m. Saturday. It is scheduled to reopen at 9 a.m. Sunday.

The work is in anticipation of "Carmageddon 2" -- the full 10-mile closure of the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass as part of an epic freeway widening project.

The northbound 405 between Getty Center Drive and Ventura Boulevard will close next week -- from 11 p.m. Sept. 15 to 9 a.m. the next day.

The full freeway closure is slated to begin about 7 p.m. on Sept. 28, when workers begin shutting down ramps along the closure route. Individual lanes will begin closing about 10 p.m., with the entire freeway expected to close by midnight. The closure is expected to continue until 5 a.m. Oct. 1.
