LOS ANGELES (AP) — Transportation officials say traffic is moving again through a major intersection near Los Angeles International Airport after a weekend bridge demolition project was completed more than four hours ahead of schedule.

LA County transportation manager J.C. Lacey says the intersection of Century and Aviation boulevards was reopened around 1:30 a.m. Monday.

Crews dismantled an old railway bridge over busy Century Boulevard to clear the area for a new light rail station. They had been scheduled to finish by a 6 a.m. deadline.

Now that the demolition is finished, traffic flow will be reduced by a lane in each direction for 16 months as the station is built.

That will make Century a tough drive to the airport, earning the project its nickname, Century Crunch.
