Los Angeles Drivers Beware: Traffic Is About To Get Much Worse [Headlines]

Closing the San Diego freeway for a weekend for bridge rebuilding is threatening to bring an already congested LA to a complete standstill.

Other cities have traffic jams. Los Angeles is gearing itself up for “car-mageddon”. The City of Angels, already infamous for bumper-to-bumper extravaganzas that have inspired whole movies, is taking the unprecedented step of ordering the total closure of what is perhaps the most emblematic stretch of congested roadway in North America for one nightmarish weekend. For 53 hours, from 7pm on the evening of Friday 15 July to the early hours of Monday 18 July, the San Diego freeway – referred to by local people, usually with a shudder, as 405, its interstate number – will be off limits between the San Fernando valley and the main LA basin.
