405 Freeway Closure July 16-17, 2011

From Councilman Rosendahl:

Councilmember Bill Rosendahl encourages everyone to stay home and use a bike to explore your neighborhood during the weekend of the 405 freeway closure. In the event you must drive, here is the information we have from Metro and a few items we compiled on our own.

Your first line for closure information is the metro.net webpage. You will find detour maps, closure boundaries, and tweets about the project. After midnight, Metro will show you time lapse photography of the actual demolition.

For real time traffic conditions on the regional alternate freeways, you can call 511 or go to go511.com before getting on the roads.

If you’re in the City of LA and need some information, you can call 311; or for the County of LA, call 211. Of course, in the event of an emergency call 911.

Remember: Ramps will begin shutting down as early as 7pm on Friday, July 15 with freeway lanes closing one-by-one starting at 10pm, in order to achieve a full closure by midnight, July 16. The full closure will remain in effect until Monday, July 18, 2011 at 5am when the freeway will reopen. All ramps and connectors will be open by 6am
