Metro offering free rides during 405 closure
The transit agency and Caltrans need to close the 405 starting the night of July 15 to demolish part of a landmark bridge that stands in the way of a $1.3 billion widening project.
With the 405 shutting down for an entire weekend in July, the city is doing what it can to ease the expected transportation stress.
Metro plans to run extra buses on major east-west streets, like Ventura, Santa Monica and Sunset boulevards. Although regular fares will be collected on buses, they will connect to the free Red Line trains for access across the mountains that separate the San Fernando Valley from Hollywood and the rest of L.A.
