Carmageddon Nears…

Southern California travelers beware: at 7 p.m. Friday, July 15, the 405 freeway will close between I-10 and Highway 101 to allow a mad 53-hour rush demolition of the Mulholland Drive bridge in Sepulveda Pass. What does this mean, exactly?

No one really knows. If everyone heeds the warnings and avoids the closure area (and if the freeway successfully reopens as planned at 5 a.m. on July 18) perhaps nothing much at all will happen. Or perhaps we'll see a traffic FUBAR of truly epic proportions: Dogs and Cats sleeping together; Carmageddon. I say don't take the risk. If you possibly can, avoid any north-south travel across the L.A. basin on or near the affected dates. And obviously, if you live or commute in the Sepulveda Pass area, plan to hunker down for the weekend. The countdown has started...
