Plans change for rebuilding Mulholland Bridge

County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky’s website is reporting there will likely be a change of plans when it comes to tearing down the Mulholland Bridge as part of the project to add a northbound carpool lane to the 405 freeway over the Sepulveda Pass. Instead of first tearing down the bridge and then rebuilding it, the current bridge will remain standing while the new one is built.

“Only after the new span was completed would the old one come down, thus reducing traffic-related inconvenience during construction,” reports Yaroslavsky’s website. Yarsoslavsky also serves on the Board of Directors of Metro.
