If you're thinking of taking this exit come next month, think again. Wilshire Boulevard's 405 freeway ramps will be closed for 90 days starting June 22.
We survived "Carmageddon," but are we ready for an extended spin-off of long-term closures when the 405 freeway's Wilshire Blvd. ramps project begins next month? Also, what will we name this new traffic calamity?
County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who explains the ramp closures in detail, blogged that the construction will take 90 days and start on June 22.
According to the L.A. Weekly, Yaroslavsky first coined the staying name of this construction project's older brother. "Carmageddon" was an instant hit, but this time media outlets have yet to settle on a moniker. While an LA Curbed reporter jumped on dubbing the 405 freeway ramp's second overhaul "The Rampture," the L.A. Times seems to be going with "Carmageddon II."
