The stretch of the 405 between the 101 Freeway and Getty Center Drive opened to traffic at 6:50 a.m., ten minutes ahead of schedule, the California Department of Transportation told KTLA 5.

The closure was part of a freeway-widening project that was delayed last week because of rain, according to Caltrans.

Sunday’s freeway shutdown began at 2 a.m., according to a statement issued by Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.

More closures were planned on the 405 for Monday and Tuesday in West Los Angeles, officials said.

The northbound side of the freeway was scheduled to close for repair work between 12 a.m. and 5 a.m. on both days, according to a statement issued by Metro.
