I-405 in Los Angeles to close 2 days in July

| June 07, 2011

Interstate 405 in Los Angeles, one of the busiest freeways in the country, will be closed for 53 hours beginning the evening of July 15 until the morning of July 18 to allow partial demolition of the Mulholland Drive Bridge.

Northbound I-405 will be closed for 10 miles between I-10 and U.S. 101, and southbound I-405 will be closed for four miles between U.S. 101 and the Getty Center Drive exit.

During the July closure, workers will demolish the south side of the Mulholland bridge. Later, crews will demolish the north side of the bridge, requiring another I-405 closure.
