Extended Lane Closures in Sepulveda Pass Coming Presidents Day Weekend

By City News Service

County, state and local transportation officials will warn motorists Tuesday that extended lane closures of the San Diego (405) Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass are planned over Presidents Day weekend.

Metro officials are dubbing the planned 80-hour closures on the northbound 405 "Jamzilla" -- not quite as serious as the two previous "Carmageddon" closures of the entire freeway, but a serious traffic issue nonetheless.

The closures will take place Feb. 14-18, mostly over the Presidents Day holiday weekend.

During the day, some lanes will be blocked on the northbound freeway, but at night, all northbound lanes will be shut down for more than five and a half miles, according to Metro. The closures will accommodate paving of the carpool lane being added to the freeway as part of a $1 billion construction project.

Officials with Metro, Caltrans, California Highway Patrol and city Department of Transportation are urging motorists to avoid the northbound freeway that weekend.
