And here’s the view looking north from Camp Carmageddon toward the San Fernando Valley about 90 minutes ago.
“This ride is welcomed by Metro’s Media Relations, and Metro’s Bike Program whose mission is to make bicycling
more viable in L. A. County. Since Metro is asking people not to drive, it is a perfect opportunity to bike instead!”

The big equipment moving into place as the clock struck midnight on the 405 with work about to begin on the north side of the Mulholland bridge. It’s Carmageddon time!
Here’s the scene about an hour ago at the Unified Command in downtown Los Angeles. Uneventful — which is good!
As we wait for lane closures to begin at 10 p.m., a thematically-correct tune for our friends at Kiewit Infrastructure West, the contractor doing the heavy lifting this weekend while bringing down the north side of the Mulholland Drive Bridge. Only thing heavy I’m presently lifting is a fork-full of fried rice.
