The Mulholland Drive Bridge was originally completed in 1960 over a remote ravine outside Los Angeles that would one day be the route of the 405 freeway connecting LA to the valley communities.
In 2011, and again in 2012, the 405 freeway beneath the bridge was closed to allow for the demolition of the bridge. The closures were referred to as "Carmageddon" because of the tremendous inconvenience the closures would cause to the greater LA freeeway system since the over 300,000 cars that use the freeway on a daily basis would have to be re-routed onto other freeways and adjacent surface streets.
On December 18, 2013 a new, wider Mulholland Drive bridge was inaugurated. The Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Southern California was invited to bring out some classic cars to pay homage to the many years of dedicated service the original bridge performed for the citizens of Los Angeles. And since there is no automobile with a more storied history than Rolls-Royce, it was a fitting tribute for this storied bridge.
