405 Southbound Ramp Closures

2:18pm

Heads up. If you’re heading south on the San Diego (405) Freeway this weekend Caltrans says the southbound 405 Freeway Century Boulevard on-and off-ramps will be closed beginning at 10 p.m., and continuing until 5 a.m.
Monday.

The planned 55-hour closure of southbound 405 ramps  will most likely effect motorists heading to or from Los Angeles International Airport. The La Cienega Boulevard on- and off-ramps will remain open, but Caltrans officials said motorists should expect delays in the area.

Heavy traffic may be an issue southbound on the 405 this weekend

The Century Boulevard ramps are being repaved as part of a $12.2 million
project that will re-surface the 405 Freeway between El Segundo and Venice
boulevards. The project is expected to be completed by the end of next year.

Once the ramps are reopened, airport-bound motorists could still encounter restrictions along Century Boulevard due to unrelated construction. Beginning Monday night, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority will begin a month-long rotation of overnight one-way closures on Century Boulevard between Aviation Boulevard and Bellanca Avenue. The work will be done between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. each night.

From Monday through Aug. 6, westbound lanes will be affected. From Aug.
8 through Aug. 13, eastbound lanes will be affected. From Aug. 15 through Aug.
20, westbound lanes will be closed, and from Aug. 22-27, eastbound lanes will
be closed. The closures will accommodate construction related to the Crenshaw/LAX light rail line.
