LOS ANGELES (KABC/CNN) – The city of Los Angeles is getting ready for "Jamzilla."
That's the name given to an 80-hour modified closure of the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles.
Construction crews will be putting down new pavement and re-striping lanes. The closure runs from Friday night to Tuesday morning on the northbound lanes of the freeway.
Transportation officials say they will be monitoring the closure using live cameras.
"We have about 400 closed circuit cameras all over the city so we can actually watch what's happening in the field from here," said Jonathan Hui of the Los Angeles Department of Transportation. "We also have centralized control over all the signalized intersections, all 4400 traffic signals in the city. So we can control those traffic signals. We can adjust signal timing if we need to. We can monitor and see what's happening in the field and deploy traffic officers if we need to at certain locations, that kind of thing."
"Jamzilla" consists of a partial daytime lane reduction, from five lanes to two, and a full nighttime closure of all lanes.
