Bad News for UCLA Night Owls Next Week (Unless You Stay All Night)

Wilshire Boulevard Closure Postponed Until Monday As Part Of 405 Construction Work

The contractor is anticipated to begin erecting bridge false-work at the Wilshire under-crossing on Monday, Oct. 24 through Thursday, Oct. 28, 2011 from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. The 405 construction contractor has postponed the full closure of Wilshire Boulevard until Monday, Oct. 24, 2011. This activity will require the full closure of Wilshire Blvd., from Veteran to Federal.

False-work is a temporary structure used to support structures in order to hold the component in place until construction is sufficiently advanced to support itself. Sepulveda Blvd. will be reduced to one lane in each direction from Ohio to Constitution and the Northbound 405 off-ramp to Westbound Wilshire will be closed.

Update: Night owls get a reprieve. There is a report as of Oct. 21 that the closures will be delayed until early next year.
