    I sat next to the chief safety officer for the 405 widening project on the Metrolink a couple of weeks ago and he told me about the weekend long shut down.  Metro had proposed building a new Mulholand bridge with a new landings on either side which would have allowed a more gradual process (tearing down one side, and replacing it, then the other), but the community led by preservationists wanted to keep the old placements exactly.  So instead they have to replace the whole bridge all at once, so that is why they are shutting the 405 down for the weekend.  Hopefully it turns out to be like the Olympics where everybody freaks out, but in the end people realize they can live without their precious freeway access for one weekend.

    From what I understand, the world is ending this weekend, so we won’t have to worry about the 405 shutdown.
