Californians Stay Off The Roads, Avoid Carmageddon II
Los Angeles, California (CNN) - "Carmageddon two" failed to materialize in Los Angeles.
Ten miles of the nation's busiest highway reopened hours ahead of scheduled Sunday night.
The 10-mile section of Interstate 405 was closed for the weekend.
A similar closure last year was dubbed "Carmageddon" for the traffic nightmare many people expected.
Those delays never materialized.
This time around, crews demolished part of a bridge to make room for another carpool lane, one L-A Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa says would be the longest in the country.
"The 405" connects the suburban San Fernando Valley with Los Angeles International Airport and stretches into the well-to-do neighborhoods of west L-A.
