The 405 expansion project otherwise known as "Carmageddon 2" begins today with ramp closures starting at 7 p.m. and lane closures starting at 10 p.m. By midnight, the I-405 freeway will be completely closed between the I-10 and U.S. 101 until Monday at 6 a.m., cutting off the biggest North-South artery in the city for 53 hours.

Carmageddon 1, last year wasn't so terrible. Everyone stayed in their neighborhoods and only traveled when absolutely necessary during the weekend. Hopefully, this weekend will be a repeat of last year....less air pollution and a very calm weekend. Have a great one!
