'Jamzilla' to affect 405 traffic on Presidents Day weekend
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Traffic headaches on the 405 freeway aren't over yet. First there was "Carmageddon," then there was "Ramp Jam." Now, commuters are being warned about "Jamzilla."
If you're already planning a trip for Presidents Day weekend next month, you might want to steer clear of the 405 Freeway. That's because there will be an 80-hour closure of northbound 405 Freeway in the Sepulveda Pass.
The construction is slated to take place between Feb. 14 and Feb. 18. There will be daytime lane reductions as well as full nighttime closures for a 5.5-mile stretch to repave the northbound side of the Sepulveda Pass.
This is necessary to pave the future carpool lane that is being built as a part of the three-year, $1 billion 405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project.
Caltrans, California Highway Patrol, Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the L.A. Department of Transportation are getting the word out now so drivers have four weeks to work around the closure.
