Drivers heading out of the
San Fernando Valley via the San Diego (405) Freeway should be aware that the
freeway would close at midnight -- one hour earlier than previously planned --
as Metro crews grind and repave the freeway through Sepulveda Pass.
The full closure had been scheduled to start at 1 a.m. Sunday, but that has
been changed to midnight tonight, said Metro spokesman Dave Sotero. The southbound
405 will reopen at 5 a.m. Sunday.
A similar closure is
scheduled for midnight Sunday night to 5 a.m. Monday.
Onramps to the southbound 5
in Speulveda Pass will begin closing at 7 p.m., Metro warned.
The closure will be in place from Getty Center Drive south to Wilshire Boulevard,
and will include the Sunset Boulevard ramps. Traffic will be allowed to enter
the freeway starting at Wilshire.
The southbound driving surface is being rehabbed tonight and Sunday. No significant
work was scheduled for the northbound 405.
