    LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 16: A pedestrian passes a detour sign as drivers heed the advice of widely-publicized warnings to stay off the roadways while workers demolish the south side of Mulholland overpass on the 405 freeway during the 53-hour total freeway closure dubbed "Carmageddon" for the resulting massive traffic disruptions expected throughout the region, on July 16, 2011 in Los Angeles, California. The bridge is being demolished part of a $1 billion project to add carpool lanes and make other improvements along the 405 freeway from Orange County to the city of San Fernando.

    [LA] Carmageddon 2: "Don't Go Near the 405"
    The second phase of the Sepulveda Pass Improvement Project is not set to begin until late September, but officials are worried drivers will not heed warnings to stay away from the 405 Freeway because Carmageddon 1 went off without a hitch. The upcoming phase will close the 405 Freeway in both directions from the 101 Freeway to the 10 Freeway for 53 hours to allow for the completion of the Mulholland Bridge. Angie Crouch reports from the Sepulveda Pass for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on August 2, 2012.
