LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A mile-long section of the 405 Freeway is expected to close overnight in West Los Angeles for construction.
The closure from 11 p.m. Saturday through 7 a.m. Sunday will impact the northbound freeway from the 10 Freeway to Olympic Boulevard.
The Olympic Boulevard off-ramp will also be shut down to accommodate work needed to widen the freeway.
The thoroughfare is expected to close again at 11 p.m. Sunday but Metro says the overnight work should wrap up before dawn Monday with lanes reopening by about 5 a.m.
Detour signs will direct motorists off the freeway at Bundy Drive.
