SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A pair of major construction projects in Los Angeles County will snarl the driving plans for San Diegans heading north, from now through the holidays, Caltrans officials said Sunday.
Major construction projects will mean nighttime closures on the San Diego (405) Freeway approaching Long Beach, and on a pair of freeways heading north across the San Fernando Valley. Both the Golden State (5) and Hollywood (170) freeways will have either lane closures or complete overnight closures for the next four weeks as well.
Near Long Beach, the northbound 405 will be barricaded at Seal Beach Boulevard every night at 11 p.m. for the next four weeks. The northbound freeway will remain closed until 5 a.m. weekdays and 7 a.m. on weekends.
When work on the northbound lanes is completed, the freeway's southbound lanes will be closed overnights.
In the San Fernando Valley, north of downtown L.A., a major widening and reconstruction project will close all but one lane of the 5 in both directions across the San Fernando Valley between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. seven days per week. Most onramps and offramps will be closed in the affected area, generally between the 170 Freeway split and the Ronald Reagan (118) Freeway interchange.
In addition, the 170 Freeway north and south will not connect to the 5 Freeway during overnight hours.
And to add to all that, the Sepulveda Pass construction on the 405 in West L.A. occasionally causes overnight closures as well.
San Diego County motorists heading towards Northern California can avoid all the overnight closure areas by taking Interstate 5 past Disneyland to the 605 Freeway, taking the 605 north to the Foothill (210) Freeway, and then taking the 210 first west to Pasadena and then north to rejoin Interstate 5 north of Los Angeles.
