Water From Construction Site Floods 405 Freeway
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Water flowing from an unknown source at a construction site near the Skirball Center flooded a portion of the San Diego (405) Freeway Sunday, a California Highway Patrol officer said.
Reports of the flooding on the northbound 405 just north of Skirball Center came in at 4:21 p.m., said CHP Officer Krystal Carter.
The water, which flowed from an unknown area inside a nearby construction site, pooled to about five-feet deep in the far right lane, Carter said.
Caltrans crews were sent out to the location.
The flooding came on a day that saw heavy rains throughout the Southland.
