Commuters advised of closures for 405 project

July 23, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Commuters are advised to be ready for closures on Sunset Boulevard and the 405 Freeway on the Westside.

Demolition work begins on Friday night on the southern side of the heavily traveled Sunset Boulevard bridge. Detours will be in place.

Work begins at about 9 p.m. for six consecutive nights, with ramp closures as early as 7 p.m. Sunset Boulevard will be closed in both directions. The northbound 405 will also be closed on Friday night.

The billion-dollar project will eventually ease congestion and improve safety on the 405.
