Nation's Busiest Interchange? Now, Piece of Cake

The Sherman Oaks cluster that joins the 101, the 405, Sepulveda Blvd. and Ventura Blvd. has completed a $46 million makeover. No longer will concrete barricades force drivers to slow to 25 MPH around tight curves. "Vehicles traveling through this interchange will now travel an average of 30 miles per hour faster than before," Mayor Villaraigosa said. Right. Unless they have to compete with the other 300,000 vehicles passing through here every day.
