San Diego (405) Freeway Sepulveda Pass Improvement Project
The contractor is scheduled to implement additional full directional freeway closures in order to further construct the falsework structure for the Mulholland Bridge. The falsework structure is designed to facilitate the reconstruction by providing temporary support to the bridge. Bridge girder plates will be temporarily placed above each bridge span and across each direction of the freeway roadway. The directional full freeway closures will be from the Ventura (101) Freeway to the Getty Center Drive ramps and are scheduled for six nights beginning Friday, March 2, weather permitting.
Each night ramps within the freeway closure limits may begin to close as early as 7 p.m. and freeway lanes will begin to close as early as 10 p.m., leading up to the full directional freeway closure between the hours of midnight and 5 a.m.
