I-405 Freeway Closure

Posted on July 17, 2011

Where did everyone go?

This was the weekend that Los Angeles was supposed to implode!!! A freeway overpass had to be taken down and one of the busiest freeways in the country, the 405, would be closed for two days. Well, the media did a great job of scaring the city and it looks like a good percentage of people left town. Flying over Los Angeles yesterday, it was pretty impressive how empty this city had become. All the freeways, beaches, parks were empty.
