Four overnight closures are planned for the 405 Freeway linking the San Fernando Valley and the Westside of Los Angeles, starting tonight (June 23).
The southbound San Diego (405) Freeway will close from the Ventura (101) Freeway south to Getty Center so crews can install permanent lane stripes and traffic speed detector loops, Metro said.
The closures will be in effect from midnight each night, tonight through Thursday. The southbound 405 will reopen by 5 the next mornings, Metro officials said. Northbound 405 traffic into the Valley will not be affected.
Southbound traffic will detour to Sepulveda Boulevard, where, as a result, heavy traffic can be expected in the wee hours of the morning.
The project is one of the finishing touches to the $1.2 billion widening and modernization of the 405 Freeway between the 101 and the Santa Monica (10) Freeway.
