In addition to Saturday’s full closure, up to three lanes of the freeway in each direction may close as soon as 10 p.m. Friday, and ending at 10 a.m. Saturday. Two lanes in each direction will remain open during this time.

Caltrans workers are permanently removing the pedestrian bridge over the freeway at Encino Avenue to eliminate its nonstandard vertical clearance.
