The Sunset Blvd Bridge, which runs over the 405 at Sunset Blvd, closes tonight as crews begin demolition of the westerly abutment of the northern half of the bridge ( take a moment to get that picture in your mind.) Work is scheduled to take place from 10pm until 5am tonight and Wednesday and be completed by Thursday. The bridge will be open during the day but closed during construction hours. Sunset Blvd ramps will also be closed during construction hours, with closure possibly beginning as early as 7pm according to Metro officials. Here is the link to Metro's detour page and here is the place to get all you want and more about this portion of the 405 improvement project which, I am predicting right here, will be in the Guiness Book Of World Records as the world's second longest construction project after the building of the Great Wall Of China.
