405 Project Delayed One More Year
Posted by Shine Huang on Apr 26, 2013 - 9:46:19 AM

LOS ANGELESI-405 widening construction was originally planned to be completed next mouth, but citizens will have to wait another year.

Following the longer construction, the budget will increase $75 million, higher than initial $1 billion planned budget, transportation officials said on Thursday April 25, 2013.

Several reasons for the project delays and cost, include relocating utility lines, structural failure, sound walls, and a legal fight over the placement of ramps.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said, "I am very disappointed at the contractor, and how they have handled this project."

Most of construction on this project requires day time work, which causes regular traffic delays.

Residents of Sepulveda Boulevard indicate they suffer traffic jams and construction noise and vibrations. Transportation officials hope to complete the majority of the project by June 2014.

According to the construction plan on I-405, it will have a new 10 miles car pool lanes which will connect the 10 and 101 freeways when finished. The new car-pool lane will ease traffic in one of the busiest traffic regions in the country.
