405 CLOSURE INFO

The I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project will add a 10-mile HOV lane, improve supporting infrastructure and widen lanes from the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10) to the Ventura Freeway (US-101) in an effort to reduce existing and forecasted traffic congestion.

Over the weekend of July 16-17, the 405 Freeway was closed between the 10 and the 101 freeways for demolition and reconstruction of the Mulholland Drive Bridge. When completed, the expanded Mulholland Bridge will be widened by approximately 10 feet and will be designed to the latest seismic standards.

The closure started at 7 p.m. Friday with ramps being shut down. The freeway fully closed at midnight and reopened earlier than expected early afternoon on Sunday, July 17.

The demolition was a meticulous process where the contractor took down portions of the bridge a little at a time. The construction schedule was broken down into 15 minute blocks, in order to beat or meet the 5 a.m. Monday deadline.
