Carmageddon: What will you be doing?
Yes, in roughly one day and 15 hours (midnight on Friday), a vital 10-mile stretch of the 405 Freeway will be shut down for the weekend as crews demolish the Mulholland Drive bridge.
Officials are predicting massive traffic jams -- and urging people to leave town or stay in their neighborhoods. Some of those officials will be available to answer reader questions at noon today on latimes.com, and Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa will be fielding your questions Friday.
We're curious what people have planned for the weekend. One Facebook group has proposed a block party on a Santa Monica Boulevard ramp to the 405. (Times staff writer Andrew Blankstein reported earlier that police have nixed that idea -- along with other plans to skateboard, bike or run naked down the empty freeway.)
