Holy crap, you'd think the world was ending around here. Actually got half a day off from work yesterday (not like I'm complaining!) for this it is so big. The 405 is one of the busiest freeways in the country and it's going to be closed between the 101 and the 10 (pretty sizable chunk) for 53 hours while new lanes are added. Pretty massive undertaking, with bonus possible-rattlesnake encounters for the road construction workers...win!
