Carmageddon II: Freeway Closures Starting Next Weekend

Upcoming freeway closures may cause major traffic delays.

In what might be called "Son of Carmageddon," Caltrans plans to close a major freeway link from Orange County into the Los Angeles area for the next two weekends, officials said Saturday.

On each of the next two weekends, the transition road road from the northbound San Diego (405) to the northbound San Gabriel (605) freeways will be closed for 55 hours.

The closures will be in effect starting at 10 p.m. on the Friday evenings of Sept. 14 and Sept. 21, and the major freeway ramp will be closed through the following Monday mornings.

That second weekend closure comes one week before the big "Carmageddon II'' closure of the entire 405 Freeway for three nights and two days over the Sepulveda Pass, 35 miles to the north.

I have to commend CalTrans for their proactive notifications on this. I've seen signs warning of it all over the place for several weeks. Glad to see they are making the effort.
