  1. The never ending 405 freeway widening is getting a little tiresome. It seems it was not even one year between one widening project was completed that the current one was started which included the demolition of just completed on ramps. I recently attempted to enter the northbound 405 from Santa Monica Bl. at about 10:00 PM. There were no signs to alert me the on ramp was closed nor a detour to use to gain access. I tried Wilshire Bl. I fallowed the detour via Federal north to Sunset Bl. The Sunset Bl. on ramp was closed and as well as Sepulvada Bl. After going south on the 405 and using streets I was directed by a flaggman at Sepulvada and Pico a on ramp was open off of Cotner between Pico and Olympic. There were no proper detour signs posted and if they were posted I could have traveled just three blocks south from Santa Monica Bl.

    With each so called improvement we see longer back-ups on Santa Monica Bl. in both directions. Santa Monica Bl. is usually backed up eastbound from Barrington to the 405. Before all this construction including the one year break the back-up used to be only one or two blocks, not nearly a mile.
