When that manhole in front of the Joule exploded last Friday, it threw a wrench in the works for the newly opened Traffic LA. The Men’s, Women’s and Play stores were forced to close until the smoke literally cleared.

But things are swiftly getting back to normal. According to Traffic LA Dallas’ guru of great taste Matthew Simon, the Men’s store will reopen tomorrow and will “house women’s jewelry and accessories as well for the time being.”  The Women’s store will temporarily stay closed until they can restock and the Commes des Garcons Play store “will hopefully be open by the weekend.”
