Meanwhile, an interchange improvement in Westwood is now open for business. The new flyover ramp connecting the southbound 405 Freeway with eastbound Wilshire Boulevard opened this Monday morning, just in time for the commuter rush. The opening forms part of an initiative to open each new facility of the northbound HOV lane project the moment it is completed. However, a similar ramp for northbound 405 motorists accessing westbound Wilshire Boulevard remains under construction. Metro projects opening the new ramp later this year, with completion of the entire project slated for summer 2014, a year behind schedule. Back in the Inland Empire, the 215 Freeway project through San Bernardino nears completion, with ancillary improvements on the way.
