405 North Ramp Jam Closure In West LA

Posted: Updated:

Call it Carmageddon, 405-enstein, Bridge Bash, Grid-lock-apalooza – call it what you want, there is nothing cute about LA traffic but at least something is being done to try and fix it.

I think.

 "Ramp Jam" is the latest installment in the $1.1. billion dollar project to try and improve traffic flow on the seemingly-never-flowing-always-gridlocked 405 freeway.

Yeah, yeah we know- it's one of the busiest freeways in the nation with 3 gazillion one-occupant only cars on it every day at every hour. I exaggerate. Slightly.

So, heads-up if your commute takes you from the Westside, as in Wilshire and Sepulveda, to anywhere north, the eastbound onramp to the 405-North on Wilshire is now closed for – cue the menacing Jaws theme here – three months.

The onramp on the west side of Wilshire is still open.

Best advice?

Move to Pahrump.

Why Pahrump? I just like saying it. Plus, I don't think they have traffic jams.

If that's not an option, catch the 405-N on Santa Monica Boulevard. Better yet, try the onramp on Cotner Avenue, off Pico.

Happy Trails!

    Apple's announcement of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus last week included a free download of U2's newest album to 500 million iCloud accounts. The free giveaway upset some customers who did not want the 11 songs from 'Songs of Innocence' synced to their devices without their permission.

    I had the chance to demo Samsung's Gear VR recently. It's a virtual reality headset powered by a smartphone. Don't let that fool you though. It's impressive!
