The 405 Freeway officially reopened through the Sepulveda Pass on Sunday morning, hours ahead of schedule.
Officials began removing the barriers blocking the onramps to the freeway around noon.
[Updated at 12:05 p.m.: Officials began allowing southbound traffic to flow, followed a few minutes later by northbound traffic. The move came after officials drove the closed portion of the freeway to look for any debris. They first opened the freeway’s exit ramps, then the entrance ramps.]
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky talk about the 405 reopening ahead of schedule.
