TRAFFIC ADVISORY: CalTrans Announces Additional Closures of Glenn Anderson Freeway (I-105)

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 10, 2008) - Both the westbound and eastbound I-105 access ramps leading to and from the Sepulveda Tunnel at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will be closed due to the widening of those ramps by the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans). Two projects will widen and resurface the Sepulveda Boulevard on- and off-ramps. The closures will be in effect both during the day and nightly at various hours.
