Plan for 405 shutdown alarms hospital leaders
Los Angeles Times

Four major Los Angeles hospitals are expressing alarm over plans to shut down the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass for 53 hours next month, saying transportation and law enforcement agencies have not adequately prepared for getting medical employees to work on time.

The unprecedented closure, required to demolish a bridge as part of a widening of the 405, is expected to cause major delays.
