Carmegeddon II: 405 Closure Set for Sept. 29-30
"Carmageddon" -– the ominous closure of 10 miles of the 405 Freeway that Angelenos survived a year ago –- is returning Sept. 29 and 30 when the 405 will be shut down in both directions between the 10 and 101 Freeways for 53 hours.
During that time, contractors will demolish the remaining side of the Mulholland Bridge (the first side was demolished last July). Motorists throughout the State of California are advised to “Plan Ahead, Avoid the Area, or Eat, Shop and Play Locally” to avoid generating extreme auto congestion in the project area and throughout the greater Los Angeles region.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Metrolink, Los Angeles Police Department, California Highway Patrol, Los Angeles Department of Transportation and Los Angeles Fire Department are giving the public advance notice to enable everyone to make all necessary advance travel arrangements to avoid the closure area that weekend.
“This closure will surely impact the nearly 250,000 motorists from all over the county that travel the Sepulveda Pass each day on the weekend,” Metro board chairman and Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich said in a news release.
