Remember Carmageddon?

It’s coming back.

This time 15 full nights of partial and full directional closures of the San Diego (405) Freeway near Los Angeles International Airport are coming as a result of construction of a bridge for the Crenshaw/LAX Line light rail project, Metro announced Monday.

The closures are set to begin on July 31 and will feature overnight full or partial directional closures from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday to Friday, although the freeway will be fully open during the weekends.

Carmageddon was the moniker for closures of the same freeway to the north in 2011 during consruction for bridges and overpasses leading to the San Fernando Valley.

This time the scheduled closures include:

— The northbound lanes will be completely closed between Century and La Tijera boulevards from July 31 to Aug. 4.

— Partial closure of the northboard and southbound high occupancy vehicle lanes and the 1 and 2 lanes from Aug. 7 to Aug. 11.

— The southbound lanes will be fully closed between the La Cienega off- ramp and La Tijera on-ramp Aug. 14 to Aug. 18.
