The hole is about 35 feet deep and 10 feet across and right now, the city of Los Angeles cannot afford to fix it.
According to the L.A. Department of Public Works, it's requested from the city emergency funds to make the repairs. When asked how long it would take to fix the damage, one of the men surveying the damage for the city would only say a few weeks once the money became available.
In the meantime, the two plus mile stretch of Mulholland Drive, the westbound lane from Lauren Canyon all the way over to Coldwater Canyon is closed. Only the westbound lane is open.
The city is asking people who rely on the damaged stretch of Mulholland Drive to get to where they're going to start looking for other ways to get around. Again, when is the work going to begin? The answer is, as soon as the city finds the money to pay for it.
