Jewish High Holy Days -- Recommended Travel Routes Due to I-405 Ramp Closures

Good afternoon.

I'd like to wish those of you observing the Jewish High Holy Days, a wonderful new year. I recognize that this time of the year is very important and we appreciate the sensitivities associated with observing these most solemn holidays.

Over the last few years, your communities and organizations have endured a great deal of change and inconvenience related to the construction of the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project. While not always easy, many of you recognize that there will be impacts for a while longer and then the project will wrap up and be done. In the meantime, we appreciate your continued support of the project and apologize for what this has meant to your daily travels!

Currently, we are in the middle of what is fast becoming the tipping point for project construction. We are on track to complete the project on time, something we all want, and to do that we have to keep of our most critical path activities on course and on schedule.

Last week we received 18 requests related to traffic detours and closures around the Jewish High Holy days. We want you to know that we worked very closely with the Contractor and were able to reasonably accommodate over 75% of them. We understand that those areas in which we were unable to accommodate the requests, there will likely be some impact and inconvenience for you and your congregants. We apologize profoundly for those inconveniences and will do our best to provide additional signage and information to all so that people will know what to expect, plan accordingly and get to and from your location in as painless a manner as possible.

Attached is a matrix that identifies the closure and alternate routes to your destinations. We will send another communication next week to provide updated information for Yom Kippur. Thank you once again for your understanding. We wish you good health and happiness for the coming New Year.

Best regards,

Kasey Shuda

It cannot have effect in reality, that is what I consider.
