Eric Spillman Braves ‘Jamzilla’ on the 405 Freeway

Reporter Eric Spillman and a photographer hit the road Monday during the KTLA 5 Morning News to find out how bad the traffic was on the 405 Freeway during day three of “Jamzilla.”

The pair drove northbound on the 405 through the Sepulveda Pass and encountered some minor delays.

The 80-hour full and partial closure of the freeway dubbed “Jamzilla” was expected to be completed as scheduled Tuesday at 6 a.m., transportation officials said.

This latest phase of construction is part of a $1.1-billion project to build a northbound carpool lane through the Sepulveda Pass.

The shutdowns through the Sepulveda Pass will allow workers to pave and re-stripe the highway where a carpool lane is being added.
