Freeway offramps into downtown Los Angeles opened before dawn, but a roughly one-block perimeter surrounding City Hall will be closed from Broadway to Alameda Street and from Temple to 3rd streets.

LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said concrete barriers will be placed around the park at City Hall as officials try to assess the damage.
