It’s only fitting that County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, who made the ‘Carmageddon’ tag a household word for the temporary closure of the 405 freeway, should have the last word on the car-free phenomenon and near-miracle of last weekend.
And the last word is a good one. Check out the nicely produced video that follows the Supervisor, alongside Mike Barbour, who manages Metro’s I-405 Sepulveda Pass Improvement Project, from the closure of the first off-ramp to the grand finale of the notorious traffic taking back the road. Makes you yearn for next year, some say, when the freeway gives the canyon — and Los Angeles, for that matter, — another breather.
There are many more stats and factoids on the first half of the Mulholland Bridge demolition in this latest edition of Zev’s Weekly Web Flash. Check it out.
