Los Angeles continued to cope just fine during Day Two of Carmageddon II, the closure of the 405 Freeway through the Sepulveda Pass.

Construction crews working on the 405 Freeway widening project were back on schedule after suffering a glitch when a large chunk of concrete fell unexpectedly during demolition of a section of the Mulholland Drive bridge, forcing a work slowdown.

Officials said the concrete chunk was demolished overnight, along with two pillars from the bridge. The 10-mile section of the freeway closed this weekend is expected to open at 5 a.m. Monday as planned.

The bridge work is part of a $1-billion freeway widening project that will add a new carpool lane to the 405 Freeway.
