This weekend, drivers on the Westside can expect a lane opening instead of a closure for a change.

Metro, the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project contractor and Caltrans announced they will officially open 1.7 miles of general purpose lane on today, Friday at 5 a.m.

The opening will be northbound on Interstate 405 between Interstate 10 and Santa Monica Boulevard in West Los Angeles.

This opening is touted as a significant “project milestone” that will add lane capacity to one of the most trafficked freeway interchanges in the nation.

In addition, it’s also projected to ease the flow of traffic during the long Memorial Day weekend.
