Yesterday’s 405 lane reductions wreaked havoc on traffic for most of the day, but enabled Metro’s contractor to expedite paving work and reopen all lanes of the freeway between Montana and Getty Center Off-ramps by midnight. Metro has prepared this statement regarding yesterday’s work:
Metro thanks motorists for their patience following lane reductions on the northbound I-405 that caused significant delays Saturday. The extended lane reductions, however, enabled the contractor to safely and aggressively perform needed paving work in the area. As a result, the contractor completed work 29 hours ahead of schedule, sparing drivers from another day and a half of adverse traffic impacts.
