A two-week closure on the southbound I-605 to the southbound I-405 connector begins tonight at 10 p.m. as part of the West County Connectors project. This closure is necessary to realign the connector, which will allow workers to widen the I-405 and connect the carpool lanes between the I-405 and I-605 freeways.
To ensure you arrive safely and on time to your destination, check out these four detour routes before you hit the road:
- From the southbound I-605, exit Spring Street. Continue on Spring Street to Woodruff Avenue and proceed to the southbound I-405 on-ramp.
- From the southbound I-605, exit Spring Street. Continue on Spring Street to Studebaker Road and proceed to the eastbound SR-22 on-ramp. Take the eastbound SR-22 connector to the southbound I-405.
- From the southbound I-605, exit Katella Avenue and proceed east. Turn right on Los Alamitos Boulevard/Seal Beach Boulevard and proceed south to the southbound I-405 on-ramp.
- From the southbound I-605, take the westbound SR-22 connector toward Long Beach. Exit Studebaker Road and proceed south to the eastbound SR-22 on-ramp. Proceed eastbound on the Sr-22 until the freeway transitions to the southbound I-405.
