This morning on the way to work Santa Monica Blvd. was shut down between Bronson Ave and Gower St.
Traffic was diverted for westbound folks north up Bronson and eastbound cars were diverted either way on Gower.
All I saw were two fire trucks. Orange cones and a parking enforcement car marked the east edge of the diversion, but I saw no officials anywhere. There were plenty of bystanders on Santa Monica Blvd across from the strip mall there next to Hollywood Forever (which seems to be the west boundary of whatever the incident is). So whatever it was, they’re not letting cars near it, but people are free to come and go.
Does anyone know what’s going on (there are no helicopters, which is really odd)? And does anyone know a good web source to find out these things?
