All the work is out of site so the whole thing looks rather benign but the truth is just the opposite. The good news is the work is on schedule. The bad news is this thing will take years.
Some young drivers may spend their entire LA driving career on the 405 and NEVER see the work completed.
I been driving Sepulveda Pass for 50 years and cannot remember when that highway wasn’t a scary drive. Even when it was just a 3-lane road. That’s right 3-lanes. One went north, another south and the middle lane was for passing. Now do that at night in a very heavy rain storm. True nightmare.
And that’s why I take the Metrolink and buses to visit the Getty.
