Metro's 'Jamzilla' To Close NB I-405 Lanes Over President's Day Weekend

LOS ANGELES ( — A planned 80-hour closure of the northbound I-405 in the Sepulveda Pass over President's Day weekend is being dubbed "Jamzilla", Metro announced Tuesday.

The closure, spanning Feb. 14 through 18, will include daytime lane reductions and full night-time closures for a 5.6-mile stretch as crews pave the future carpool lane that is currently being built.

Drivers are advised to eliminate trips on the northbound 405 Freeway from Getty Center Drive to Ventura Boulevard, as well as avoid other regional freeways, Metro said.

Full northbound night-time freeway closure times are as follows:

• Friday, Feb. 14 – 1 a.m. to 6 a.m.
• Saturday, Feb. 15 - 2 a.m. to 7 a.m.
• Sunday, Feb. 16 - 12 a.m. to 5 a.m.
• Monday, Feb. 17 - 12 a.m. to 5 a.m.

"The designated alternative route for night-time full closures will be for motorists to take the Wilshire northbound to westbound off-ramp to northbound Sepulveda Boulevard, returning to northbound I-405 at the Greenleaf northbound on-ramp," Metro officials said in a statement.

Sepulveda Boulevard also will be fully open with two lanes in each direction during the paving operation.

Interstate 10 connectors to the northbound 405 will also be closed.

The closure and paving project is part of the $1.1 billion Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project that is slated for completion by this summer.
