Sunset Blvd. “Ramp Jam” Begins Tonight
WEST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The northbound I-405 off-ramp to Sunset Boulevard will be shut down for 120 days starting Friday night.
The closure, which is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m., is a part of the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project.
The contractor will be able to complete building an off-ramp that will be 60 percent longer than the current one during that time.
The new configuration will feature two northbound right-turn lanes to eastbound Sunset Blvd. and one northbound left-turn lane to westbound Sunset Blvd.
“Northbound freeway motorists that normally utilize the Sunset off-ramp to access Westside destinations are encouraged to plan ahead to determine alternate routes, allow extra time to reach destinations, eliminate unnecessary trips to avoid peak congestion and/or consider ridesharing and public transit options,” Metro said in a statement.
