Starting tonight and lasting five more consecutive nights, crews will demolish one half of the Sunset Boulevard bridge over the 405 Freeway. The bridges are being retrofitted as part of the $1 billion northbound carpool lane project.

"Demolition work and associated closures will be conducted during night-time hours only, with the bridge, freeway and local streets reopened during day-time hours," explains Metro on their blog, which has full details on closures over the next six days. "Demolition activities are expected between the hours of 9 p.m. and 6 a.m., with bridge demolition occurring between 12 a.m. and 4 a.m. Ramp closures may start as early as 7 p.m."
