A stretch of Ventura Boulevard between the 405 Freeway and Van Nuys Boulevard is getting a facelift.

L.A. City Councilman Tom LaBonge announced the repair effort called "Ventura Boulevard: Operation Street-Lift" on Thursday.

The program will provide repairs like street resurfacing, tree trimming, and new concrete reinforcements for bus stops.

"Operation Street-Lift" will forbid cars from parking on Ventura Boulevard between the hours of 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. for two weeks.

"With Operation Street-Lift, all services are being provided to Ventura Boulevard in tandem so as to minimize impacts to the neighborhood," Councilmember LaBonge said. "While there may be some minor inconveniences, Sherman Oaks is getting a better street."

Street resurfacing begins Saturday night and will last about two weeks. The work will only take place overnight to avoid disrupting local businesses.
