Metro's online chats return today at noon, with "Living with the I-405 Sepulveda Pass Widening Project" featuring project director Michael Barbour.  The stated purpose of the chat is to help residents deal and navigate familiar streets with unfamiliar traffic patterns caused by the mammoth widening project; but if this chat follows course with many of the other ones Metro has held, there will be a number of "off topic" subjects.  There's a free Streetfilms DVD for anyone that can get the words "induced demand" into the chat.  Really.

The reviews of past chats haven't been all that great, but I've always found something useful in them.  If nothing else, the topic is specific enough that there ought to be some new, useful, information about the most expensive stimulus project in the country.  To post live questions during the chat or e-mail advance questions, go to metro.net/chat.
