The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled closures of the eastbound and westbound Marina Freeway (State Route 90) connectors to the northbound San Diego Freeway (Interstate 405) at specific times on weekdays through Friday, February 15th.

The Marina Freeway west connector is scheduled to be closed from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the east connector will be closed from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The closures are related to the $167-million High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) project on Interstate 405 in both directions from the Marina Freeway to the Santa Monica Freeway (Interstate 10).

The project is expected to be completed in summer 2009, at which time the HOV lane on the southbound 405 Freeway will be continuous from the San Fernando Valley through Orange County.
