The Mulholland Drive Bridge will be demolished and reconstructed to accommodate the widening of the I-405 freeway and to add a northbound high-occupancy vehicle lane through the Sepulveda Pass. Demolition activities will take place over the July 16-17 weekend for 53 consecutive hours, resulting in the full closure of the I-405 freeway in the Sepulveda Pass. The Mulholland Drive Bridge will also be closed that weekend.
In conjunction with state and local agencies involved with the Mulholland Drive Bridge project, the City of Los Angeles, Department of Transportation has finalized temporary restricted parking on City streets for Saturday, July 16 thru Monday, July 18. Parking lanes on the surface streets specified below will be used for through traffic only and therefore designated as "Tow Away, No Stopping Anytime" during the upcoming weekend.
