Nothing Can Stop It!
It Will Destroy Life As We Know It!
Tonight, all traffic on Interstate 405 between the US101 and I10 interchanges on The Westside of Los Angeles will come to a screeching halt as that stretch of the highway is shut down for 53 hours for bridge construction. The media has nicknamed it “carmageddon” because the two interchanges and the 405 (also known as The San Diego Freeway) routinely top the list of the busiest interchanges in the country. It is a fact, us Los Angelenos love our cars and public transportation is sorely lacking–especially on The Westside. I thought it would be fun to take a peek at our love affair with cars when the 405 was still brand new.
And, of course, The Beach Boys singing car songs!
As for me…I live on The Eastside and am not planning on traversing to The Westside, so I will probably survive carmageddon unscathed (unless the zombies decide to come over to our side of the city, then it will be another issue altogether…).
