今週末7月15日夜から17日（金土日）の間405番フリーウエイが一部閉鎖されます。サンタモニカ10番フリーウエイからベンチュラ101番フリーウエイまでの10マイルの距離です。この高速道路閉鎖は、「カーマゲドン」と命名されたそう。 "Carmageddon" might just be a good reason to stay home, because alternate routes around the closed 10-mile section of the San Diego (405) Freeway between 10 freeway and 101 freeway from July 15 night to July 17, 2011 are likely to be jammed. "We believe the streets will be totally gridlocked," Sherman Oaks resident Richard Tyler, who lives near Sepulveda Boulevard, told the Los Angeles Times. "We don't think we will be able to get out ... We even wonder how the mailman will get around."
On Friday, July 15, ramps to the 405 between the 10 and 101 will begin shutting down around 7 p.m. as part of the $1 billion project which will make room for additional HOV lanes. The actual freeway will begin closing at 10 p.m. and start reopening around 5 a.m., with all ramps open by 6 a.m. Monday, according to Caltrans.
Kiewit Infrastructure, the company that originally built the overpass and will now be removing it, will be docked $6,000 for every 10 minutes they pass the deadline for each direction of the freeway―as much as $12,000 for the north and southbound lanes. That's about $72,000 per hour.
Kiewit will have 53 hours to complete the project. In addition to the demolition, they will be putting down―and later removing―a 6 foot layer of sand over the roadway to protect it from falling concrete and debris.
The fines go into effect after 6 a.m. on Monday, July 18, 2011.
If you need to pass around the area for "Carmageddon", it's better to leave work early on Friday, July 15, 2011 and stay home on July 16th and 17th. The section of the free way is the busiest freeway in U.S.A. with 300,000 cars per day pass by.
