They"ll be plenty to do this weekend, you just might not be able to reach it. The 405 being shut down July 16th-17th, with some early shut down action or closures on the 15th.

The LAist reports some interesting news that if the contractors go over time they'll be penalized. Penalized $6,000 every ten minutes over time. This can also go up because each side of the 405 is considered a separate project.

Also the metro will have free rides and more buses out this weekend to compensate

Parties are popping up and some  viewings of the demolitions while kicking back.
