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
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.
