405 Freeway Closure405 Freeway Closure, Daily traffic in Los Angeles may be worst in the nation, but have not seen anything yet. Suddenly, just a month and a half before the end of the 405 largest, and lifeguard who became clogged Westside – carrying about 281,000 vehicles daily – LA transportation officials have decided to leave and warn the world of this impending doom.

No time, alas, to save thousands of pre-booked holiday ruined. The world-famous Getty Center, a … … Will be forced to completely close Saturday, July 16 and Sunday, July 17 along with their regular Monday’s close. And the end could not come at a worse time: Getty spokeswoman Melissa Abraham said that the 1.2 million visitors the museum receives each year in mid July is “one of the busiest weekends.”

Sorry, tourists. I suppose you have to settle for scribbling in the MOCA street rat.

Oh, wait – MOCA Located along the 101, this relic of a narrow highway intended to address the hundreds of thousands of drivers Pissy, honky displaced from their normal route by the end of summer of 53 hours.

405 will be completely closed in both directions between highways 101 and 10 to 1 incredibly busy stretch of 10 miles – starting the evening of Friday, July 15 and ending 5 am the following Monday morning. CalTrans explains why:

The Sepulveda Pass I-405 Improvement Project will add a 10-mile HOV lane and improve the supporting infrastructure such as ramps, bridges and sound walls in San Diego Fwy. (I-405), while extending rails Santa Monica Fwy. (I-10) on the Ventura Freeway. (US-101).
This project will reduce traffic congestion on the existing and planned I-405 and improve traffic operations by adding highway capacity in an area that experiences heavy congestion. In addition to these modifications, the project will improve existing and future mobility and improve safety throughout the corridor.

And do not even think of taking Sepulveda Boulevard, the 405 ranges to the surface of the alternative pathway. “Sep? Lveda slammed,” says the Encino Neighborhood Council. “There will be mobile.”
