More Pain on the way to More Gain

Beginning Monday, October 24 at 7 a.m., lanes will be reduced on Sepulveda Boulevard between Moraga Drive and Montana Avenue as part of the $1 billion northbound I-405 carpool lane project in West Los Angeles.

The bad news: These closures will be in effect for three months, seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. in order to perform utility relocation work.

The good news: The Sunset Boulevard off-ramp, closed daily since October 15, will reopen on October 30.

The 10-mile carpool lane, from I-10 to U.S. 101, will complete in 2013 and is expected to provide congestion relief to long-suffering Westside motorists.
