Construction to Close Sections of Ventura Freeway

The Sepulveda Boulevard off-ramp of the westbound Ventura Freeway will be closed from 10 p.m. today until 5 a.m. Monday for improvements, the state Department of Transportation announced.

In addition, the connector road from the northbound San Diego Freeway to the westbound Ventura Freeway and the connector road from the eastbound Ventura Freeway to the northbound San Diego Freeway will be closed between 10 p.m. today and 11 a.m. Saturday, and between 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday, Caltrans said.

Several other parts of the Ventura Freeway will be closed for road work between 10 p.m. today and 11 a.m. Saturday.

They are:

* Up to four lanes of the westbound Ventura Freeway between Van Nuys Boulevard and Haskell Avenue;

* The on-ramp from Van Nuys Boulevard to the westbound Ventura Freeway;

* The on-ramp from Woodman Avenue to the westbound Ventura Freeway;

* The on-ramp from Hayvenhurst Avenue to the eastbound Ventura Freeway;

* The off-ramp from the eastbound Ventura Freeway to Haskell Avenue.

Additional Ventura Freeway sections will be closed for road improvements between 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday.

They include: Two lanes of the westbound Ventura Freeway between Van Nuys Boulevard and Haskell Avenue; two lanes of the westbound Ventura Freeway between Reseda Boulevard and Wilbur Avenue; the on-ramp from Woodman Avenue to the westbound Ventura Freeway; and the on-ramp from Van Nuys Boulevard to the westbound Ventura Freeway.

Caltrans has scheduled the closings so it can replace reinforced concrete slabs at the ends of freeway bridges throughout the interchange of the Ventura and San Diego freeways, officials said. The improvements are part of the final stage of the Ventura Improvement Project, a $76-million effort that began in 1988 and is scheduled for completion in 1992.
