  1. Please clarify: Is the entire bridge being demolished (like the Burbank Blvd bridge on the 5), or just part?

    Also, why is Metro not covering the I-5 work on The Source? It is a -=Major=- transportation project in the area.
    Same question with regards to the 6th St viaduct and the new Gerald Desmond bridge.

    • Hi Just a Person;

      I’m not sure the percentage of the bridge that will be demolished this weekend, but as the notice says there are closures in both directions.

      Fair enough on I-5 project. However, the 6th Street viaduct project is city of L.A. project.
