The demolition and reconstruction of the northbound entrance to the 405 freeway from westbound Wilshire Boulevard and the northbound exit from the 405 to westbound Wilshire begins tonight. My sympathies to those who will be sitting in excess traffic.
The above is a map showing alternative access to the 405 freeway. There will obviously be traffic issues in the area — there’s no way to close a Wilshire-405 ramp without causing traffic.
Here are a few other resources that may be helpful:
•Carpool and ridesharing info for those who want to help reduce the number of cars in the area — or at least share the misery with someone else.
•Here’s a link with more information for area employers who want to arrange transit for workers.
•Here is a six-page fact sheet on the Wilshire ramp reconstruction that helps explain why the ramps are being rebuilt and how everyone should benefit.
•And here is yesterday’s post with a video explaining the project as well as the construction notice about the work beginning this weekend.
