Carmageddon 2: 405 Closures This Weekend And Next (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Think of this weekend and next weekend as dress rehearsals for the big Carmageddon II show the weekend of Sept. 29-30.

This Friday night/Saturday morning, from 11pm to 9am, all southbound lanes on the 405 will be shut down from the 101 to Getty Center Drive. Next weekend, all northbound lanes on the same section of the 405 will be closed for the same hours.

Also, this weekend, from Friday 10pm to Sunday 8am, the Mulholland Bridge will be closed.

These two "baby Carmageddons" are in preparation for Carmageddon II on Sept. 29-30, when BOTH sides of 10 miles of the 405 will be closed for 53 hours while crews finish demolishing the Mulholland Bridge.

Although last year's Carmageddon finished early, that's not expected for Carmageddon II because more work needs to be done. In fact, LA County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky commented about Carmageddon II, "It's like 'Carmageddon' on steroids."

Carmageddon I and Carmageddon II are both part of the city's larger $1-billion Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project, which also includes a new carpool lane and the demolition of eight freeway ramps.

Don't say we didn’t warn you. Who knows, maybe we'll have another Carmageddon baby boom?
