Studio City Neighborhood Council Issues Carmageddon II Warning

Metro and rail are great substitutes.

Beginning tonight, September 28, I-405 ramps between the I-10 and US 101 will begin closing. Freeway lanes will gradually be closed, beginning as early as 10 pm, until all lanes are closed at 12:01 am, Saturday, September 29.

We have been asked how Metro Bus and Rail Operations will accommodate the possibility of increased transit demand this weekend. Here is that answer.

All Metro Rail lines and Orange Line will run according to regular schedule with the following additions:

  • Red Line will run with longer-length trains; additional service will be added, if needed.
  • Blue, Expo and Orange Lines will have standby vehicles to be added, if needed.
  • Metro Rapid 761 (Van Nuys Bl/Sepulveda Pass Rapid) will run with additional buses, supplementing the existing weekend schedule.

Thank you for all your help during the Countdown to Closure II. Now it’s up to the drivers of Southern California.

Your first line for information is the project website, as well as the project's social media sites:

In honor of Carmageddon II, here is a music video! "Can't Believe The 405!" is a funny spin on R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly" about this fateful stretch of road. Check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=snCMG5oZKEY Finally, a tune that Los Angelenos can proudly sing in their cars, if they don't already in their hearts. Please share if you like! Godspeed the rest of this weekend, everyone!!
