I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project

We need your help.

If you are or work with a webmaster or social media expert, you can help spread the word about the 80-Hour Closure of the northbound I-405 freeway by posting free widgets to your websites.

Scheduled for Presidents’ Day weekend, February 14 through 18, the closures will reduce the mighty I-405’s northbound lanes to two open lanes during daytime hours and a complete closure during nighttime hours.

The 80-hour closure will eliminate several 55-hour closures from the project schedule. Motorists need to reduce their driving or avoid the I-405 area; otherwise, multi-hour delays may result.

You can emphasize our message of Avoid Delays, Reduce Driving or Stay Away, by choosing one of the advertisements (we have provided six sizes) and pasting that code to your website. We have included the code here.

The countdown widgets provide links to the project Facebook and Twitter pages, and the project page that contains heaps of information on the February closures, including when lanes and ramps will be closed. The static banners link directly to the 80-hour closure information page.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership in spreading the word on I-405 closures.

Updates are available at Twitter and Facebook or the I-405 project website.

Operation Neighborhood Blitz Is Coming To MINC – Pothole Lottery On 10/14!

Got Potholes?

Do you know of a bad pothole that is in severe need of fixing somewhere in the MINC area? Then, you’ll be interested in Operation Neighborhood Blitz! This is a program set up by Mayor Eric Garcetti – where each Neighborhood Council gets the use of a 2-man Street Services team for a day – to go around and fix potholes in the area – as many as they can do in one day (roughly about 8 of them).

MINC will be holding a POTHOLE LOTTERY to decide which potholes in the region get fixed on our assigned day – November 5th.

So, come to the next MINC Stakeholder Meeting (Monday, October 14th @ 7PM) to participate in the POTHOLE LOTTERY! Entries will be drawn at the meeting – and you must be present during the drawing to have your pothole qualify to be chosen. You can email potholes to register your pothole ahead of time (but you still must be present to qualify) – or just show up at the meeting and put in your entry at that time.

More information is available at mincla.org/potholes.

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.
