Northbound I-405 Lanes Scheduled to Close During ‘Jamzilla’

Another days-long closure — unofficially dubbed “Jamzilla” — has been scheduled for the 405 Freeway as part of an ongoing construction project in the Sepulveda Pass.

Multiple northbound lanes will be temporarily closed Feb. 14-18 during the 80-hour closure, according to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority. A 5 ½ mile stretch of the freeway will be closed between Getty Center Drive to the south and Ventura Boulevard to the north.

Two of the route’s five northbound lanes will be closed during daytime hours, officials said. All five lanes will be closed between 12 a.m. and 7 a.m.

The southbound I-405 will remain open, but one or two lanes will be reduced during paving operations in the evening.

“The alternative to one 80-hour closure would be conduct six separate 55-hour closures over six consecutive weekends,” Metro said in a statement.

The February closure comes more than two years after “Carmageddon” and more than one year after “Carmageddon II,” in which sections of the freeway were shut down while bridges at Mulholland Drive and Sunset Boulevard were rebuilt.

Correction: An earlier version of this article originally gave the incorrect timeframe for “Carmageddon” and “Carmageddon II.”
