We got through Carmageddon and we'll get through "Wilshire-gate," or whatever you wish to call the long-term closure of the northbound I-405 westbound Wilshire Boulevard on- and off-ramps.
The best approach is to be prepared and give yourself lots of extra time. The upcoming closure schedule is as follows:
Demolition and reconstruction of the westbound/northbound Wilshire on and off-ramps will start at 10 pm on Thursday, June 21. The WB Wilshire on-ramp to NB 405 and NB 405 off-ramp to WB Wilshire will remain closed for 90 days, starting at 9 pm on Friday, June 22. Restriping and lane reconfiguration will take place on Thursday, June 21, from 10 pm to 6 am. Demolition activities are scheduled for three nights, June 22-June 24. June 22 and June 23 street closures will be in place from 9 pm to 10 am; Sunday, June 24 closures will take place from 8pm to 6am.
