Carmageddon 2, The Sequel

By
Real Estate Agent with Power Brokers Int'l BRE# 01439865

Carmageddon 1 was a non-event.  It took place a year ago to much fanfare and fear.  We thought that Los Angeles would shut down.  Amazingly enough everyone stayed home and driving on those days was a pleasure.

Carmageddon 2

Then we had The Rampture.  It was delayed from last year to a couple of months ago and continues, with on and off-ramps to the 405 being intermittently closed . Do we have congestion on the Westside, yes, but it is not as traumatic as first thought.

Carmageddon 2 is scheduled to start at around 7:00 p.m. on September 28, 2012 and continue through October 1st at about 5:00 a.m. with the closing and opening of ramps first then freeway lanes.

The purpose of this second closure is to complete the demolition of the rest of the Mulholland Bridge.  Last year the work was finished early which is not anticipated this time since there is more involved.

Let’s hope this closure goes as smoothly as the last.  Shame too, since I am out of the country the week before…..

Buying or Selling Los Angeles Real Estate

Buying or selling a Los Angeles home can be a daunting process in a city this size, especially if you’re new to L.A. Town. You’ll need a resident expert to show you around and help you narrow down the areas where you might like to live. I will help you find the perfect home in the right area to fit your lifestyle, budget and needs!

When I list and sell Los Angeles homes for my clients I strive to make the experience a pleasant one. My mission is to provide outstanding service while utilizing the best practices and systems available.

If you are an absentee owner, you’ll need someone to handle all the details that you can’t handle remotely. That’s where I come in – I’m there when you can’t be. I also specialize in lease property in Los Angeles.

I love this Jane...Carmageddon 2 lol :)!  What a light hearted way to describe what may happen when they close ramps and bridges.  Lots of luck for smooth traffic that week!  You're right, way too bad they couldn't schedule that for the week you are out of town lol :)!

We have similar construction and ramp closures on one of our major highways and it's driving people mad down here. The flow of traffic has changed on the off ramps and lord knows how many accidents or near accidents it's caused. Hopefully everyone there pay more attention than FL drivers so and stays safe!

Jane,

Ugh! With major roads at maximum capacity, any interruption causes a lot of heartache. Pray that it goes smoothly.

Jane - In Tahoe there is a running joke here -we only have two seasons winter and orange cone season! It seems our road construction is never ending.  I hope yours goes better than ours!

Hopefully it'll be calm too.  WOW they really start early to get the word out.  Here they put up a "Expect Delay" sign about 3 hours before the close the street . . . for a month.  LOL  Keep us informed!!

Jane, it's people like you who help to get out information on carmageddon.  Only a person who knows the Los Angeles market like you do would understand what it all means.

Keeping fingers crossed that Carmaggedon 2 will also go smoothly. We've had a few weekend shut downs of roads & bridges here--traffic was better than usual.
