405 Reopens After Construction Ends 29 Hours Early
LOS ANGELES (KTLA) — All lanes of the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway reopened early Sunday morning after planned improvements were completed 29 hours ahead of schedule, according to a statement posted on Metro’s website.
Construction work on a 2.4-mile stretch of the freeway caused shutdowns of some or all northbound lanes at different times, starting on Friday night.
The freeway was reduced Saturday afternoon from five to two lanes between the Montana Avenue offramp and the Getty Center Drive offramps in West Los Angeles, Metro officials said. The closures had been scheduled to last until early Monday.
But the contractor completed their work early, sparing drivers another day of gridlock.
The construction work was part of the 405 Freeway Sepulveda Pass Improvement Project in which a carpool lane will be created and the freeway will be realigned.
