LOS ANGELES (KTLA) –The northbound 405 Freeway was reopened on Sunday morning after being closed through the Sepulveda Pass for several hours.
The northbound 405 was scheduled to close for about four miles between Getty Center Drive and the 101 Freeway from 1 a.m. until about 6 a.m. Sunday.
During the closure, workers prepared supporting structures for the reconstruction of the Mulholland Drive bridge. A similar closure took place on the southbound 405 on March 8.
The weekend construction is part of a $1-billion project that will add a carpool lane and widen lanes on a section of the 405 that is notorious for traffic jams.
The so-called Carmageddons I and II involved total shutdowns of the freeway while the old Mulholland bridge was demolished.
