The following closures were scheduled to start at 9 p.m. Saturday, and will continue nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Friday, according to Caltrans:
- The La Tijera Boulevard and La Cienega/Manchester Boulevard on-ramps to northbound I-405 will be closed. Drivers can access northbound I-405 from Century Boulevard or Howard Hughes Parkway.
- One lane of northbound I-405 will be closed between the La Cienega Boulevard/Manchester Boulevard and Howard Hughes Parkway exits.
