Southbound I-405 / Eastbound SR-22 Connector Bridge Demolition: August 2013

Southbound I-405 / Eastbound SR-22 Connector Bridge Demolition | August 2013

WHAT:
The southbound I-405 connector to the eastbound SR-22 freeway is being reconstructed in order to make room for the new SR-22 / I-405 carpool connector. Once construction on the new connector is complete, the old connector must be demolished. Since the southbound I-405 / eastbound SR-22 connector crosses over the I-405 freeway (near Valley View Street), in order to demolish the old structure, portions of the eastbound SR-22, northbound I-405 and southbound I-405 freeways will be closed for approximately 20 hours, over a weekend in mid-August 2013. 

WHEN
Portions of the eastbound SR-22, northbound I-405 and southbound I-405 freeways will be closed from approximately 9 p.m. on Saturday, August 17 to approximately 5 p.m. on Sunday, August 18, 2013.  Please be advised these dates and times are subject to change due to unforeseen operational factors or inclement weather.

What will be closed?

  • Northbound I-405 freeway will be closed at Valley View St.
  • Southbound I-405 freeway will be closed at the I-605 freeway junction
