Los Angeles transportation officials are alerting I-405 and regional freeway motorists of an 80-hour northbound I-405 freeway closure operation in the Sepulveda Pass this Presidents' Day weekend, Feb. 14 to 18. 
 
The closure consists of a partial daytime lane reduction and a full nighttime closure of the freeway’s northbound lanes between Getty Center Drive and Ventura Boulevard. Approximately 5.6 miles long, the closure will affect two-thirds of the length of the entire I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project.
