The 405 Freeway is perhaps the most busy freeway in California.

The government in Los Angeles has decided to shut down the busiest stretch of the busiest freeway in California during the peak of the driving season.



Carmageddon begins Friday July 15, 2011 at 7 p.m. Pacific Time and will reopen Sunday morning at 3 a.m.

    Where do you think all these people are going to move when they can't find a job in the socialist state of California?

    Then they will ruin Utah like they did California.

    I actually spent some time in the LA area, seems logical for California, build a major highway through the mountains, and shut it down completely. to make repairs! go California...into the sea! thank God for the I-5, fastest way out of town....

    I live in L.A. but will not be going nowhere until the 405 reopens. It may be a disaster in moving traffic and it may go smoothly. I can see all the local streets and canyon roads bumper to bumper. Los Angelenos unlike San Franciscans do not panic they just live. roads bumper bumper los angelenos san franciscans panic live Los Angeles Earthquake bridges and freeways collapsed

    The above is an example of the non-use of freeways during the 1994 earthquake. We survived and we ate and we got around.

    Where else can you get action, suspense & humor out of a 3 minute clip? The people that did this have brilliant imaginations.

    You don't drop a bridge in pieces. Once they start they will have to complete it.

    The crisis will be if they fail to complete on time!!!

    Well, if it needs to be closed, then so be it. But It seems that construction on or roads and highway, are done with the intent of creating a hassle.

    It won't really effect me, I don't drive on the 405. As a matter of fact I do most of my driving on the streets, try to bypass the freeways all of the time. It can be done and is usually faster than getting in gridlock.

    Many of the surface streets within about 2 mi of the 405 will be packed and probably parking lots during the 9am to 9pm hours of the week end. The Friday evening mess starting at 7:00 pm will be a nightmare!

    Good luck smog breathers!

    The 405 isn't the only freeway in Southern California, as a matter of fact it doesn't even run anywhere near my house. So like I said I'm good.

    I'm glad I don't live in California, but the shut down of the 405 will effect the Trucking industry for sure.

    Those pictures of 405 look like a parking lot, not a highway.
