WESTWOOD, Calif. (KTLA) — Starting on Monday, drivers who travel through the Sepulveda Pass will have to deal with extra traffic and delays.
It’s all part of the same $1 billion 405 Freeway widening project that prompted the two ‘Carmageddon’ closures of the freeway.
The closures begin at 9 a.m. Monday and will last for seven days.
That stretch of Sepulveda will be reduced to one lane in each direction during the day, and will be completely closed between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Road crews will be working to smooth out the grade difference between the new roadway and the old one.
The new Sepulveda Boulevard alignment slices through a hill east of the freeway, where a large retaining wall has been built.
Moving Sepulveda to the east and changing its grade will allow for a new carpool lane and auxiliary exit lanes on the northbound 405.
Once Sepulveda is relocated, workers will build the new northbound lanes, Metro officials said.
