The 405 construction contractor has postponed the full closure of Wilshire Boulevard until Monday, Oct. 24, 2011.

The contractor is anticipated to begin erecting bridge false-work at the Wilshire under-crossing on Monday, Oct. 24 through Thursday, Oct. 28, 2011 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.

This activity will require the full closure of Wilshire Blvd., from Veteran to Federal.

Sepulveda Blvd. will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Ohio to Constitution and the Northbound 405 off-ramp to Westbound Wilshire will be closed.

False-work is a temporary structure used to support structures in order to hold the component in place until construction is sufficiently advanced to support itself.
