Nearly a year of preparations and warnings to commuters are being tested now with the 9 p.m. closure of a four-mile stretch of the 405 Freeway in Orange County. Transportation officials hope to avoid traffic jobs from the 20-hour closure, dubbed "Bridge Bash" after the demolition of a 50-year-old bridge that connects the 405 and 22 freeways. Ted Nguyen, a spokesman for the Orange County Transportation Authority, said crews and officials met about an hour before the closure to hash out final instructions.

The $20-million project adds a fifth lane to the southbound 405 from the Ventura Freeway (101) interchange in Sherman Oaks to the Wilshire Boulevard exit in Westwood. "This will help ease the bottleneck under the 101," said Richard Katz, co-chairman of the San Fernando Valley Transportation Strike Force.
