Reader photo: The 405

Car lights form streaks down the 405 Freeway in this image by Kelvin Cheng, taken from the Getty on Nov. 16. Also visible is the Holiday Inn in the foreground, the Wilshire Corridor and downtown Los Angeles in the distance.

While traffic flows freely in Cheng's photo, drivers are bracing for "Jamzilla" this weekend, when approximately a 5.6-mile stretch of the northbound 405 will be closed for 80 hours.
