405 widening project presentation now online

A community meeting was held Thursday evening at the Skirball Center for the 405 widening project that will add an HOV-lane for 10 miles over the Sepulveda Pass. It’s a monster project with a billion-dollar pricetag that will soon begin construction and is scheduled to be complete in 2013.

Here’s a link to an 18-page presentation on the project that was shown to audience members at the meeting. For those who have been following the project, there’s nothing new here, but the presentation does provide a basic overview of the work to be done.

When the HOV lane is complete, there will be continuous carpool lanes on the 405’s entire journey through Los Angeles County. I posted Caltrans’ most recent map of the L.A. County HOV network after the jump.
