A Caltrans spokeswoman said the new lane would run for two miles between Mulholland Drive and the Ventura Freeway. It is intended to ease congestion at the 101-405 interchange. The survey work will close one northbound lane, said Margie Tiritilli of Caltrans.

My mother is coming to Los Angeles to live. For a year, or permanently, depending on how the city, and such sudden proximity to her children, suits her. She is a tiny bit nervous about several things--after a recent monthlong trip, she wonders if the sun ever shines in the morning in L.A.

What's more complicated than Carmageddon and could seriously mess with the flow of Angelenos' long Presidents' Day weekend? It's Jamzilla. That's the monster-evoking moniker that transportation officials have adopted for the 405 Freeway lane closures slated to begin late Friday, just in time for the post-Valentine's-Day dinner rush. For 80 hours - from about 10 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Tuesday - most or all lanes on the busy northbound side of the freeway will be closed. The shutdowns through the Sepulveda Pass will allow workers to pave and re-stripe the highway where a carpool lane is being added.

If you haven't yet planned the weekend, grab three friends or family members and head north. Avoid the predicted "Carmageddon"-size gridlock when the 405 Freeway closes Saturday and Sunday by heading to Mammoth Mountain, where you can stay three nights for -- of course -- $405. The deal: The Escape Carmageddon package for $405 plus tax for three nights lets you chose among various hotels at the ski area, including Mammoth Mountain Inn at 9,000 feet on the mountain to lakeside Tamarack Lodge.

On Monday morning, Bree Walker opened the door of her home in Venice and ushered me in. Her very blond, slightly messy hair was tumbling out of a bun on top of her head. Her face was bare, as were her feet. She wore a loose-fitting pair of polka dot drawstring pajama bottoms and a purple sweatshirt over a blue satin shirt. Very Westside hot mom. She seemed to have a tattoo on her extremely taut lower abdomen, which was peeking from her shirt. Her gait was slightly unsteady. “I am nervous about coverage these days,” said Walker, a high-profile television news anchor in Los Angeles from 1988 to 1994 who was arrested last week on suspicion of driving under the influence.
