    As I conducted a little research of my own on this demolition, I came across a website (http://www.sixthstreetviaduct.org/) with massive, detailed listings of all of the detour routes which I felt emphasized just how crowded and populated the city of Los Angeles is. Shutting down a bridge for 40 hours in Pinconning, Michigan means nothing, but in Los Angeles, a city of almost four million people, this is a massive undertaking and a large inconvenience. I immediately thought back to the summer of 2011 with the closure of a portion of the 405 freeway, deemed “Carmageddon,” who’s impact was so large that a noticeable baby boom was recorded in the Los Angeles area nine months later. It just speaks to our lifestyle and the major effect that the infrastructure of the city has on our lives.
