Century Crunch, update #6: new photos of bridge demolition work


Photos by Jose Ubaldo/Metro.




With many travelers returning to Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday afternoon — as is typical — there has been some traffic congestion on roads around LAX.

The intersection of Aviation and Century boulevards will remain closed the rest of Sunday with a reopening by 6 a.m. Monday. If headed to or from LAX Sunday evening, please avoid the area, take the FlyAway bus, use Sepulveda Boulevard if driving or take transit.

The above photos were taken Sunday afternoon and show the work thus far in demolishing the old railroad bridge over Century Boulevard to clear way for the Crenshaw/LAX Line’s new Aviation/Century Station. Again, a lot of helpful info in this earlier post about getting to and from LAX this weekend.

If headed to LAX, check for traffic updates on the airport’s main Twitter feed with the hashtag #centurycrunch. We’ll also continue updating the Source as necessary and update Metro’s general Twitter feed with the hashtag #centurycrunch.

For those who enjoy demolition videos, here are a pair of short timelapses from the weekend:

Friday night to Saturday morning — closing the intersection and demolition beginning
