Upcoming I-405 Freeway 20-Hour Full Closure – August 17-18 (Saturday/Sunday)

Metro would like to make sure you are aware of OCTA’s planned 20-hour closure of the I-405 between I-605 and SR-22 this weekend (9 pm Saturday, 8/17 – 5 pm Sunday, 8/18). Details about the closure, including recommended detours, can be found below. Feel free to share with your network.

During the weekend of August 17 to 18, crews will demolish the old southbound I-405 / eastbound SR-22 connector bridge, requiring a 20-hour full closure of the I-405 freeway. In preparation of the bridge demolition, the WCC team along with our partners at Caltrans have been busy promoting the upcoming closure.

• Northbound I-405 freeway will be closed at Valley View Street

• Southbound I-405 freeway will be closed from the I-605 freeway to the eastbound SR-22 connector (near Valley View Street)

• 7th Street / Eastbound SR-22 will be closed at the southbound I-405 freeway junction (near Studebaker Road)

Crews will close the I-405 freeway for 20-hours, from 9 p.m. Saturday, August 17 to 5 p.m. Sunday, August. 18.


The red line indicates which portions of the freeway will be closed. Detours for the southbound I-405 freeway are highlighted in green and for northbound I-405 freeway detours are highlighted in orange. Click the image above for more information about the recommended detour routes or to view a larger version of the map.

In addition to our weekly outreach efforts, the WCC team has canvassed more than 67,000 homes and businesses immediately adjacent to the project corridor to notify the public about this major closure. Also, nearly 120 permanent and portable electronic changeable message signs have been activated along the freeways in Orange County as well as throughout Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties.

Metro ExpressLanes Coming To I-110 This Fall


Metro ExpressLanes is a pilot, one-year demonstration program overseen by Metro, Caltrans and several other mobility partners that have joined forces to develop a package of solutions to improve traffic flow and provide enhanced travel options on the I-10 and I-110 Freeways in Los Angeles County.

The program includes the introduction of congestion pricing by converting High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes to High Occupancy Toll (HOT) lanes; the improvement of transit service and other alternatives to driving; the updating of transit facilities; and the improvement of parking in downtown Los Angeles.

It is about improving mobility and offering a safe and reliable trip for users. Everyone benefits with reduced congestion and greenhouse gas emissions, increased travel time savings, and better trip reliability. Metro ExpressLanes is primarily funded with a $210 million congestion reduction demonstration grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation. Tolling begins October 2012 on the I-110 and February 2013 on the I-10. It’s about time.

Metro ExpressLanes features include:

  • Conversion of the I-10 El Monte Busway HOV lanes (I-605 to Alameda St) to HOT lanes
  • Conversion of the I-110 Harbor Transitway HOV lanes (Harbor Gateway Transit Center (formerly Artesia Transit Center) to Adams Bl) to HOT lanes
  • 59 new alternative fuel expansion buses and operating subsidy for the demo period 
  • El Monte Station Expansion
  • New Transit Station at Patsaouras Plaza
  • Harbor Transitway Park & Ride Upgrades
  • Metrolink Pomona Station Expansion
  • Transit Signal Priority Expanded in Downtown LA
  • 100 New Metro Vanpools
  • New expansion bicycle lockers at the Harbor Gateway Transit Center (formerly Artesia Transit Center) & bicycle station at El Monte Station
  • LA Express Park
  • Overall Program Budget – $290 million
  • Construction started in 2011
  • Customer Service Center opens Summer 2012
  • Tolling begins Fall 2012
