LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – If you are trying to get to Los Angeles International Airport, your trip just got more challenging.

The transition ramp from the northbound 405 Freeway to the westbound 105 Freeway near LAX began a four-month closure Tuesday for reconstruction.

The ramp closed at 10 p.m. Tuesday, with the project expected to wrap up by the end of April, Caltrans said.

Crews will be demolishing and removing the concrete roadway surface. Caltrans will rebuild the roadway and the embankment and install a new drainage system.

As a detour, motorists were advised to exit the northbound 405 at either Imperial Highway or Century Boulevard and turn left toward Los Angeles International Airport. Motorists traveling from farther south should consider taking the 110 Freeway north to the 105 as an alternative.

Motorists should anticipate delays.

Caltrans officials said they scheduled the project in consultation with LAX officials in hopes of avoiding the airport’s most congested periods.

The ramp from the northbound 405 to the eastbound 105 has been closed for about 14 weeks for reconstruction, but that transition road will reopen at 5 a.m. Wednesday.
