PLAN AHEAD: 405 Closed July 16th thru early morning of the 18th!!
The freeway section is expected to reopen at 5 a.m. July 18, according to Metro officials.
An estimated half-million cars, trucks and buses use this freeway on a typical summer weekend. The closure is part of the ongoing freeway-widening project, which will create a 10-mile northbound carpool lane on the 405 between the Westside and the San Fernando Valley.
Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky’s refers to this planned shutdown as a “midsummer night’s nightmare for motorists heading to LAX, the beach, or other destinations.”
