As expected, officials just announced that work on demolition of the northern side of the Mulholland Drive Bridge over the 405 freeway has gone well this weekend. As a result, the 405 is on track to reopen at 5 a.m. tomorrow, as was planned.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said that everything has gone well and also thanked area residents for staying off the road this weekend.
County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said Carmageddon II marked the “beginning of the end” for the I-405 Sepulveda Improvements Project, which he said will be complete in late 2013.
Aerial footage of the site shows that the northern half of the Mulholland Drive bridge is completely gone, with crews now working to clear the freeway of dirt and construction and demolition materials.
