PHOTO HIGHLIGHT: Sunset Bridge is Falling Down
On Friday, July 23, demolition began on Sunset Bridge, the first of three bridges over the northbound 405 Freeway that will be removed and reconstructed as part of the 10.1 mile HOV lane project on from I-10 to U.S. 101. The $1 billion project, which received $190 million in ARRA funds, is being implemented jointly by Caltrans and the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro). Construction began in 2009 and will complete in 2013.
The photographs were taken by Caltrans and Metro.
