LANE CLOSURES SCHEDULED FOR I-405 HOV PROJECT
LOS ANGELES – As part of the preliminary work for the northbound San Diego Freeway (I-405) High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV, or carpool) lane from the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10) to the Ventura Freeway (U.S. 101), the following closures are planned from July 13 through July 17:
- 10 p.m. Monday, July 13 to 7 a.m. Friday, July 17, nightly, one lane on northbound I-405 from Sunset Boulevard to U.S. 101;
- 10 p.m. Thursday, July 16 to 6 a.m. Friday, July 17, one lane on northbound I-405 from I-10 to Wilshire Boulevard;
- 7 p.m. Thursday, July 16 to 6 a.m. Friday, July 17, one lane on southbound I-405 from I-10 to Wilshire Boulevard.
Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) are jointly implementing this $1 billion design/build project. Contractor is Kiewit Pacific Company. When this project completes, estimated in spring 2013, it will complete the HOV lane system on I-405 in Los Angeles County, making it possible for motorists to ride in the carpool lane in both directions from the San Fernando Valley to Orange County.
