Carmageddon Part One is Over – Next, The Rampture

With Carmageddon over for this year, the next inconvenience to hit Los Angeles motorists is The Rampture.

Sometime soon two  Wilshire Westwood on  and off ramps to the 405 will be closed for 90 days.  These will be followed by the closure of the other two Wilshire ramps which will last from 14 to 90 days.

Originally scheduled for this month the closures have been pushed back right now to November.  The first ramps affected will be the westbound on ramp to the 405 north and the northbound 405 off ramp to westbound Wilshire.

The Westwood area is already congested and this is not going to help and area residents, including UCLA are worried about traffic cutting through their streets especially as Sepulveda Blvd., the designated detour route, is going to be seeing some utility relocation work at the same time.

All this work is part of a $1.034 billion project to add a 10 mile carpool lane on the 405 and flyover ramps, which are intended to ease the notorious congestion in the area.

However, if you can find an alternative route around Westwood,  it would be strongly advised.  Carmageddon will have had nothing on The Rampture.

  1. Supposedly we are having “the same” here on the 15 this weekend. They compared it to this event but I doubt we will come close to the chaos as LA traffic!
