Reminder: You'll Have to Save Yourself from This Disaster

Back on June 1, we posted a notice about an impending traffic disaster around UCLA due to begin tomorrow. Here is a reprint:

Construction and Traffic Impacts Beginning June 15, 2015

In the coming months, two major construction projects will impact traffic in and around the UCLA campus. Beginning on Monday, June 15, at 7 a.m., and running until the beginning of Fall Quarter, Strathmore Place from Westwood Plaza to Charles E. Young Drive West will be closed to thru-traffic while significant enhancements are completed to the roadway under the Strathmore Bridge. Access to Parking Structure 8 (PS 8) will remain open, but levels 1 and 2 will no longer be accessible from the easternmost entrances on Strathmore. Please visit for vehicle and pedestrian detour maps as well as detailed points of entry/exits for PS 8.
Also, beginning on Monday, June 15, 2015, at 7 a.m., running through the end of July 2015, as the first phase of a LADWP project to install 385 feet of new trunk line adjacent to campus, several hundred feet of Sunset Boulevard west of Hilgard Avenue will be reduced to one-lane in each direction and access to southbound lanes on Hilgard from Sunset will be completely closed. Two subsequent phases will connect the new trunk line to existing infrastructure at the Sunset/Hilgard intersection and along Hilgard Avenue, ending south of Charing Cross Road. For more specific information on the project, please visit
We should note in fairness that UCLA is not the only location having traffic problems. The video below shows traffic-stopping goats belonging to the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, one of the labs managed by UC. The goats eat vegetation that could cause a fire hazard. (We kid you not.)
