This is Carmageddon weekend and the 405 freeway will be closed starting tonight July 15, 2011 at 10 pm and will reopen on Monday, July 18th at 5:00 am.
Our public officials are advising that you stay home and away from the affected area to avoid extreme traffic challenges. The Unified Command will have set up 13 satellite divisions throughout the region for the weekend. These will be fixed posts staffing personnel from police, fire and traffic ready to respond.
For real time traffic conditions, the public is encouraged to listen to KNX1070 AM radio, visit Go511.com. or contact the 405 Project Hotline at 213.922.3665.
Have a safe weekend!
