Traffic Change on Sepulveda Blvd Southbound at the 405 in Sherman Oaks

Heading over the hill to a client on Thursday, I noticed a new change in the traffic pattern on Sepulveda Blvd Southbound, as you leave Ventura Blvd. Starting at Sutton Street, the left hand lane is now an exclusive Left Turn Only lane leading to the SB 405 on-ramp.

While I have complained about some traffic changes in the past, I think this one is an improvement. Before the change, the left hand turn lane at the on-ramp was stubby -- barely holding 3-4 cars. This often caused cars waiting to enter the freeway to back up into the left hand through lane. While it will be confusing for some drivers for a while, it is clearly marked and prevents this backup from occurring. I think this change is related to the major 405-101 project which is completing some aspects of its construction.
