Carmageddon II is only a week away! If you have any lingering questions about the upcoming 405 freeway closure, log on to a live chat with LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky tomorrow at noon and get your answers. Visit metro.net/chat to join the chat or send your questions in advance right now to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zev is referring to this second closure of the 405 freeway as ”Carmageddon on steroids.” While Carmageddon I turned out to be “Carmaheaven,” this round of closures involves 30% more work to be completed in the same short 53-hour time period as last year.
Make this Carmageddon yet another Carmaheaven: Plan Ahead, Avoid the Area, or Eat, Shop and Play Locally.
Keep up with progress on the bridge demolition by following local news reports or visiting http://www.metro.net/projects/I-405/.
