Disclaimer: the above video is a dramatization. Actually calling 511 may result in a different experience.

Southern California 511 – the free traveler information service that provides traffic updates via phone or web – has launched a new feature to keep Southern California drivers up to date during Jamzilla, the 80-hour paving operation scheduled for Presidents’ Day Weekend, Feb. 14-18 in the Sepulveda Pass.

Call 511 on your phone or smart phone during President’s Day Weekend and, after the automated answer, say “Jamzilla” to receive information on the I-405 closure or say “traffic” to receive frequently updated information on traffic on nearby freeways that feed into the Sepulveda Pass area. Updates will include freeway traffic drive times, freeway speeds and SigAlerts. Similar information will appear on the website go511.com, which also includes a real-time traffic map.

P.S. Don’t forget about the Jamzilla live chat scheduled for this Friday! We promise, no roaring over the keyboard.
