The southbound lanes of the San Diego Freeway between the San Fernando Valley and L.A.’s Westside will be closed on Monday and Tuesday nights for construction.
The southbound freeway will be closed from the Ventura (101) Freeway to Getty Center Drive as crews continue to construct a new bridge across the 405 at Mulholland Drive.
The closures will allow contractors to build construction scaffolds above the freeway, next to the remaining half of the old Mulholland Drive overpass.
Sepulveda Boulevard will remain open next to the freeway during the closures as an alternate route. But it only has one lane in each direction in much of the work zone.
The work is part of the Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project, a $1.2 billion effort to add a 10-mile carpool lane and improve ramps, bridges and sound walls, according to Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
The project is scheduled to be completed next year.
