Residents, businesses and travelers in the vicinity of the Mulholland Bridge and the 4-05 San Diego freeway should be aware of upcoming directional closures for construction on the Mulholland Bridge that will begin Friday.
The contractor is scheduled to implement additional full directional freeway closures in order to further construct the falsework structure for the bridge. The falsework structure is designed to facilitate the reconstruction by providing temporary support to the bridge.
