LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Portions of the northbound lanes of the San Diego (405) Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass will be closed this weekend for roadwork.

The freeway will be closed between Wilshire Boulevard and Getty Center Drive for three nights so crews can realign lanes and work on the median, Metro said.
