L.A. Metro Produces New Public Service Announcement for July 16-17 405 Closure Featuring Actor Erik Estrada

Thursday June 30, 2011

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has produced a new I-405 closure Public Service Announcement featuring actor Erik Estrada that is available for public use.

Available in English and Spanish, the video PSA reminds the public to Plan Ahead, Avoid the Area or Stay Home during the closure weekend July 16-17, 2011.

Estrada, who played "Poncherello, a California Highway Patrol officer in the popular 1970s-1980s TV show CHiP's, volunteered to do the PSA to Metro for free in recognition of the importance this freeway improvement project will have in adding carpool lane capacity to the I-405 between the I-10 and U.S. 101 freeways.
