Residents and businesses in the vicinity of the Skirball Center Dr Bridge and the 405 Freeway are being alerted to upcoming reconstruction work on the northern half of the Skirball Bridge.
The contractor is anticipated to perform the concrete pour to form the deck on the bridge this Friday night, Sept 16.
This operation will require a full directional closure of the freeway in each direction on one night, weather permitting.
Only one direction of the I-405 freeway will be closed at one time, beginning with the closure of the southbound direction followed by the closure of the northbound direction.
Ramps within the freeway closure limits may close as early as 7 p.m. and freeway lanes may close as early as 10 p.m., leading up to the full directional freeway closure beginning at midnight.
This activity is anticipated to require the closure of Skirball Bridge between the hours of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m on Saturday.
Detour maps are available at www.metro.net/I405.
