'Carmageddon On Steroids' Starts Now

Friday, June 22, 2012
The "Rampture" is coming.

Also known as the "Ramp Jam" and "Octojam," this year's carpocalypse makes last year's Carmageddon (when a section of the 405 freeway was closed for a weekend) look like smooth sailing.

The project is going to last for an entire year and involve demolishing and rebuilding eight ramps on the 405 freeway. On Friday at 10 p.m., the first two Wilshire ramps will be closed for 90 days of 24-hour-per-day construction, NBC reports.
