Freeway Closure in Los Angeles Dubbed 'Jamzilla' 

iStock/Thinkstock(LOS ANGELES) -- Another freeway shutdown is coming to Los Angeles this weekend.

During President's Day weekend, as a part of ongoing construction, "Jamzilla" will shut down the Northbound side of the 405 freeway at night. The freeway will only open partially during the day.

The 405 was previously shut down for a weekend of construction in 2011- an event dubbed "Carmageddon."

According to ABC's Alex Stone, 150,000 drivers use the Northbound 405 every day. California Highway Patrol Chief Dan Bower is urging drivers to stay in their neighborhoods this weekend to prevent "Jamzilla" traffic nightmares.

The 405 is not scheduled to be fully reopened until Tuesday.
