In the video above, KTLA News shows the quick progress workers have made in beginning the demolition of the Mulholland Drive bridge over the 405 Freeway. Heavy equipment breaks down the concrete bridge.

This YouTube video shows traffic stopping on the 405 Friday night when the roadway was closed. The video shows one driver going in reverse on the freeway in attempt to take an offramp and avoid the congestion. The move nearly causes an accident with a big rig.


Another YouTube video shows smooth sailing for motorists over the Sepulveda Pass on Friday night, shortly before the 405 was closed.
