Due to construction activities associated with the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project, UCLA commuters and visitors will see the  following impacts  from Friday, September 16th at 10pm until Monday, September 19th at 6am:

  • Northbound I-405 to eastbound Sunset Boulevard off-ramp will be closed
  • Sunset Bridge (Sunset Boulevard between Church Lane and Sepulveda Way) will be reduced to one lane in each direction

This construction coincides with move-in weekend at UCLA. It is recommended that drivers plan ahead and allow additional time to travel to and from the University. Families and visitors that need to access the UCLA dormitories should follow these detour routes:

  • If Approaching UCLA from the South: Exit at Wilshire East and proceed on Wilshire to Veteran Avenue.  Turn left on Veteran Avenue and proceed north, or as directed by Traffic Officers.  If headed to Sunset Village, Hedrick or Rieber, drivers should generally remain on Veteran Avenue, turn right on Sunset Boulevard and right again on Bellagio Drive. If headed to DeNeve Plaza, drivers should proceed on Veteran Avenue to Gayley Avenue.  Turn right on Gayley and  turn left onto campus at Strathmore Drive. Drivers wishing to access the southbound I-405  upon leaving UCLA will still be able to do so at the Sunset on-ramp, but should expect delays due to reduced bridge capacity.
  • If Approaching UCLA from the North: Drivers will still be able to exit I-405 at Sunset Boulevard and access campus via Sunset, but should expect delays due to reduced bridge capacity. Drivers wishing to access the northbound I-405  upon leaving UCLA will still be able to do so at the Moraga on-ramp, but should expect delays on westbound Sunset as they approach the bridge.
