The big news in LA this weekend: Closure of a ten-mile stretch of the 405 freeway for demolition of a bridge and other construction work. They're calling it "Carmageddon", and authorities have been warning motorists for weeks of the scheduled closure and expected massive delays. Earlier this week, Jet Blue announced special $4 fares on flights between Long Beach and Burbank - airports on opposite ends of the closed section of freeway. Now, a local bicycle club is going to race Jet Blue across town!
