Jamzilla update #7, 10:30 p.m. Monday

Tough traffic out there Monday. As you probably know if you tried to drive the northbound 405 over the Sepulveda Pass — there were significant delays with heavy traffic trying to squeeze into two lanes.

The northbound side of the 405 will be closed at midnight, with lanes scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. and ramps and connectors by 6 a.m. Tuesday as the repaving work concludes. A news conference for media will also be held early Tuesday to discuss the 80-hour closures this weekend.

More on the 80 hour closures on the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvement Project’s home page. The project is adding a northbound HOV lane between the 10 and 101 freeways along with ramp and bridge improvements to improve traffic capacity and seismic safety.
