Southbound lanes of the Interstate 405 Freeway will be closed overnight Wednesday into Thursday.

Road crews will begin closing southbound lanes to traffic beginning at 10 p.m. Wednesday between the Getty Center on-ramp and Sunset Boulevard.

Lanes will be fully closed at midnight, when work is scheduled to commence. Lanes will remain closed until 5 a.m. Thursday.

Southbound freeway traffic will be detoured off the freeway at the Getty off-ramp onto Sepulveda Blvd. to the southbound Church Lane on-ramp.

Lanes will be re-striped, shifting lanes easterly closer to the median barrier. The same number of traffic lanes and the same width will remain after the re-striping is completed, according to Metro and Caltrans.
