Judging by some of the videos out there, there appears to be some significant spalling on the overpass. Even with available downtown LA detours, this could take a little bit of time to get fixed.

The Ghostbuster:
My mother showed me an online story about this. I responded by showing her a Street View image of the burned location before it went up in flames. How does this compare to the damage the Interstate 10 freeway took from the earthquake in 1994?

Yikes.

Amusingly almost nobody on the Quick Map is using Olympic and an alternate.

My money would be on an extended closure since, if the fire burned hot enough to melt steel guardrail, it probably also cooked tensioning cables within the viaduct.
