"Carmageddon" - the countdown begins! 405 Closure Information


It's actually happening... the 405 Freeway is going to be shut down. Gridlock or Hype? You tell us.

We sent out a letter last week to our guests who plan to stay next week and weekend, warning them of the freeway closure. Though the Inn is out of "harm's way", we anticipate gridlock throughout the Westside of Los Angeles.

Here's what we said:

The 405 freeway (between the 10 Freeway and the 101 Freeway) will be closed for approximately 53 hours on the weekend of the 16th and 17th of July. Although the portion of the 405 freeway nearest to the Inn at Playa del Rey will remain open, we thought you should know – just in case it will affect your imminent travel plans.

Traffic going south of Playa del Rey should be affected very little.  Traffic headed NORTH of Playa del Rey will be substantially delayed. Travel between the Inn and LAX will not be affected. Below is a link to an article describing the closure in detail.


Please let us know if you have any concerns or need directions for alternate routes. We are happy to be of assistance.

Tell us what you think - will traffic be one insane snarl or is this all just LA hype?
