Part two of "Carmageddon" is scheduled for September 29-30, which will see a 10-mile closure of both directions of the 405 Freeway.

During the closure, contractors will demolish the remaining side of the Mulholland Bridge.

The closure will last 53 consecutive hours and take place between the I-10 and U.S. 101.

On Friday, September 28, ramps along the 10-mile closure area will begin to be shut down as early as 7 p.m., and closure of individual freeway lanes will begin at 10 p.m. to ensure full freeway closure by midnight. The closure is scheduled to continue until 5 a.m. Monday morning, Oct. 1.

Ramps and connectors will be reopened by 6 a.m.

During this closure, the Mulholland Bridge, I-405 freeway and access ramps will be closed.

As with the previous I-405 closure, Sepulveda Boulevard is intended as an alternate route for local resident access only. Sepulveda Boulevard does not have the capacity to accommodate both local and diverted freeway traffic.
