Night Work to Close Ventura Freeway Lanes
Work on widening the Ventura Freeway will require nighttime lane closures this weekend in the west San Fernando Valley, the state Department of Transportation announced Thursday.
From 10 tonight to 11 a.m. Saturday, two westbound lanes will be closed between White Oak and Wilbur avenues and two eastbound lanes will be closed between Winnetka Avenue and Reseda Boulevard.
In addition, the westbound Reseda Boulevard and White Oak Avenue on-ramps will be closed the same hours.
From 10 p.m. Saturday to 11 a.m. Sunday, two westbound lanes will be closed between Balboa and Burbank boulevards and two eastbound lanes will be closed between Winnetka and Lindley avenues, Caltrans officials said.
Also, the westbound White Oak Avenue on-ramp and the eastbound Vanalden Avenue and Burbank Boulevard on-ramps will be closed Saturday night.
The work is part of a Caltrans project that is adding a fifth lane each way on the freeway from Topanga Canyon Boulevard to Universal City.
