GUEST PRESS RELEASE: I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project begins June 22
May 11, 2012
Plan ahead, adjust your travel times, share the ride.
On Friday, June 22, 2012, the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project will begin demolishing the first of eight ramps joining Wilshire Bl and the I-405 freeway. This rebuilding begins with the demolition of two ramps:
- I-405 N off-ramp to Westbound Wilshire
- Westbound Wilshire on-ramp to I-405 N
The contractor anticipates rebuilding these two ramps in 90 days. Reconstruction of all eight Wilshire ramps is expected to take more than one year.
These closures and the subsequent reconstruction of the other six Wilshire ramps are expected to create significant temporary impacts to Wilshire Bl and adjoining streets, such as Federal Av, Sepulveda Bl and Veteran Av. Sunset Bl and Santa Monica are recommended alternatives.
By building the new ramps, we will reduce the conflict between Wilshire Bl and the I-405 as it crosses Wilshire Bl. In turn, this should reduce backup at other north/south streets, such as Westwood Bl and Veteran Bl.
A community meeting on Thursday, May 24, 6 to 8pm, will focus on the Wilshire ramps reconstruction. The meeting will be held at the Westwood Recreation Center, 1350 S. Sepulveda Bl, LA 90025. Project management and other agency representatives will be available to answer questions.
