Carmageddon: Yes, it will be live-streamed online

July 15, 2011 |  7:53 pm


Carmageddon -- the much anticipated (feared?) shutdown of the 405 Freeway from the 101 to the 10 this weekend -- may force many Angelenos to stay in their homes, maybe even ride a bike to get around and, hopefully, stay away from traffic that is expected to be widely congested.

If you'll be one of those staying in and surfing the Web, the California Department of Transportation is live-streaming video of traffic and construction for those who want to keep an eye on just what's going on around the 405.

As noted by the website Gigaom, Caltrans offers up streams of video from multiple cameras (the feed switches every few seconds) on the 134 and 405 freeways, the 10, 105 and 605 and 101 and 110.

Also, be sure to check out the L.A. Times' extensive coverage of all things Carmageddon.
