Beginning at 7:00 p.m. tonight, ramps on the 405 freeway will be shut down in preparation for the weekend's full closure of the interstate, to allow the Mulholland Drive Bridge to be demolished. Known as Carmageddon, the closure promises to turn the westside and surrounding areas into a clusterfuck for any cars that choose to drive during that time. In honor of this unprecedented traffic upheaval, filmmaker Ross Ching redid footage of one of his movies, to envision what the entire city would look like without cars. Enjoy.
