    A message board flashes a warning Wednesday, Sept. 26, 2012, to drivers on Interstate 10, the Santa Monica Freeway in West Los Angeles, to plan for the two-day closure of the Interstate 405 freeway over the Sepulveda Pass this coming weekend, Sept. 29-30. The event is known as Carmageddon II.

    One on-ramp that was closed as part of the massive weekend-long "Carmageddon II" shutdown was already reopened by mid-day Saturday.

    On the very northern end of the 10-mile shut down of the San Diego (405) Freeway, a northbound on-ramp at Greenleaf Drive reopened just before noon. The on-ramp is just south of where the 405 and the Ventura (101) Freeway intersect.

    Caltrans crews had finished minor work in that location, according to California Highway Patrol officers.

    The reopening allows northbound traffic on Sepulveda Boulevard to get onto the northbound freeway before crossing over the busy intersection with Ventura Boulevard.
