Did you hear that they shut down the 405 freeway between the 101 and 10? If you live in LA, it would be impossible not to know about. Around here they call it Carmageddon. So far, however, it seems pretty benign. Then again, we live in East LA!
One especially fun development is that Jet Blue is offering $4 flights from Burbank to Long Beach as a way of avoiding the 405...but mostly as a marketing gimmick, of course. A group of LA bicyclists responded to a challenge to race one of the planes from one destination to another. Both teams of travelers must start from a set location outside of Burbank and they end up in a park in Long Beach. More here. Go bikes!
