WEST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Metro announced Thursday a 120-day closure of the northbound I-405 off-ramp to Sunset Boulevard.

The closure, which is scheduled to begin Aug. 3, 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.


Westbound Sunset

  • Daytime: Northbound I-405 off-ramp to westbound Wilshire Boulevard, to northbound Sepulveda Boulevard, to eastbound Sepulveda Way, to westbound Sunset Boulevard.
  • Alternate: Moraga Drive off-ramp, to southbound Sepulveda Boulevard, right on Church Lane to Sunset Boulevard.
  • Nighttime: Northbound I-405 off-ramp to westbound Wilshire Boulevard, right on northbound San Vicente Boulevard, right onto north Barrington Avenue, left onto westbound Sunset Boulevard.

Eastbound Sunset

  • Northbound I-405 off-ramp to eastbound Wilshire Boulevard, to northbound Veteran Avenue to eastbound Sunset Boulevard.

Sunset Boulevard project improvements, including complete reconstruction and widening of the Sunset Bridge over the I-405, widening of the Church Lane undercrossing and construction of area retaining walls, are some of the project’s most significant roadway improvements.
