There’s the scene earlier this afternoon as crew work to clean up the roadway. There will be a news conference at 5 p.m. at Camp Carmageddon with an update on construction/demolition progress.

A bridge, a Carmageddon and Saturday night

Here are a few photos I took late Saturday afternoon and early evening. Disclosure: I applied some filters and other processing to try to hide my photographic deficiencies. Plus, I like how they look. Click on any of them to see larger.

Work on the Mulholland Bridge about 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Photos by Steve Hymon/Metro.

Looking north toward the San Fernando Valley in the late afternoon. The vintage filter comes from the Snapseed app for iPhone/iPad.

What do you do when you forget to fully focus? Apply filters to make it look like you did it on purpose! This was taken after a big chunk of the western span of the bridge fell.

Work continues on the western span after nightfall.

Hoe-rams at work on the big chunk of debris from the bridge’s eastern span.

Looking north to the Valley on a very quiet 405 about 9 p.m. Saturday.

One of the big hoe-rams departing the scene — more signs of progress.

A good view from the roadway looking south at the bridge and work on demolishing the last of the old bridge columns for the north side of the Mulholland Drive Bridge.

The photo gives you an idea of all the activity still on the freeway surface; a lot of dirt and debris still needs to be cleared from the roadway.

Video snippet of Saturday's demolition work on Mulholland Drive Bridge

Metro’s Jose Ubaldo shot this with his cell phone. It helps give you a good idea of the work at hand — literally taking down half the bridge. Compared with the photo below taken shortly after sunrise Sunday, the video shows how much work has been done in the past day.

Wow. What happened to the northern side of the bridge?!
