Wondering how you will survive the Wilshire ramps closure set to begin June 22 and last about a year? In advance of the planned 90-day closure for reconstruction of the first two Wilshire ramps at the I-405, Board of Supervisors Chairman and Metro Board Member Zev Yaroslavsky will hold an interactive Live Chat from noon to 1 p.m. Friday, June 15.
You can join the chat live at metro.net and/or you can send in advance questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here’s your chance to ask Zev and members of the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvements Project team questions about the closures that are expected to create additional Westside congestion as all eight Wilshire ramps are consecutively demolished and rebuilt over the next year or more.
Here are a couple of charts that show how many cars are using the 405 in both directions at Wilshire — the exact reason Metro is trying to prepare everyone for traffic in the area.
