Debris falls from the Mulholland Drive bridge over Interstate 405 as workers take down the bridge in Los Angeles, Saturday, July 16, 2011. A 10-mile stretch of one of the nation's busiest freeways has turned into a virtual ghost road. Ramps to the normally clogged Interstate 405 began shutting down Friday evening before the entire roadway was closed at midnight, setting the stage for a 53-hour construction project that will test whether this car-dependent city can change its driving habits for a weekend.
