The Los Angeles Police Department, in partnership with CalTrans and Metro, have released a set of maps showing the closure route of the July 15-18 Mulholland Bridge demolition on the 405 Freeway, aka Carmageddon. The message has been consistent for the past several weeks: Avoid the area of the 405 and the Sepulveda Pass that weekend.

To check out your options, Metro has an extensive set of maps showing all of the segment detours for the closures, as well as the "Mulholland Dr Bridge Demolition & Reconstruction" Closure Plans (North and South) and the Alternate Routes shared by the LAPD. Plan ahead; don't wait for Lady Gaga or Erik Estrada to tell you what to do!
