LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The Sunset Boulevard offramp from the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway reopened today following a roughly four-month closure for reconstruction.

The rebuilt ramp is roughly 60 percent longer, allowing for more vehicles and easing the transition of vehicles off the freeway, according to Metro, which is overseeing the $1 billion 405 Freeway construction project in the Sepulveda Pass.

The new ramp includes two northbound right-turn lanes to eastbound Sunset and one northbound left-turn lane to westbound Sunset.

Metro officials said about 9,600 vehicles use the Sunset offramp each day.
