Southern Californiaâ€™s â€œCarmageddonâ€� weekend finished without a hitch as work on Interstate 405 that had closed the busy freeway wrapped up early Sunday, about 17 hours ahead of schedule, the Los Angeles Times reported.
I-405 is a busy motorway used by truckers in the Los Angeles area, and contractors were able to demolish and rebuild the Mulholland Drive bridge ahead of Monday morningâ€™s rush hour, the Times reported.
I-405, also known as the San Diego Freeway, connects to several other Los Angeles highways, including Interstate 5, the primary north-south West Coast link between the Mexican and Canadian borders.
