Video: LA without Cars

Ross Ching’s video takes a look at a car-free Los Angeles, something unimaginable for a city that is so automobile dependent. But last weekend people had no choice as the heavily traveled 405 was closed. Carmageddon as it was called was part of a $1 billion dollar reconstruction project, including installation of an HOV lane and upgrading of some on/off ramps. The 10 mile section of the freeway was anticipated to be closed for 53 hours from midnight on July 15th until 5am July 18th however the construction ended a bit earlier. Tshirts were sold, apps were produced, and viral videos were all part of the epic closure of the 405.
