405 Construction Destruction Continues, Ramps to Close

UPDATE: Metro/Kiewitt will close two Wilshire ramps for an extended period beginning in August.  Northbound off-ramp at Sunset will close August 3, to be followed later in the month by the Northbound on-ramp from Eastbound Wilshire.

Metro schedules change often. The most up to date source for 405 Sepulveda Improvement Project information is at the Metro website.


Closure of the northbound on ramp from eastbound Wilshire is expected to extend for 90 days beginning in August and will overlap with a 120-day planned closure of the Sunset Blvd. off-ramp. Sunset traffic is expected to exit at Montana or Moraga during the closure. Metro plans to detour the east-bound Wilshire traffic south on Sepulveda to the Santa Monica Blvd. on-ramp. Drivers who chose instead to turn north on Sepulveda will encounter delays entering the northbound 405 at Moraga. Congestion in the Moraga/Ovada/Sepulveda area will be compounded for 8-months by an ongoing reduction of Church Lane from three-lanes to two.
