The newly opened 6th Street Bridge was closed by police on Saturday night, marking the second night in a row of closure.

Los Angeles Police Department said the second shutdown was due to “illegal activity”.

“The day started with community residents holding signs in the middle of the bridge that read ‘RESPECT THE BRIDGE’. Let’s listen!” the police said. on Twitter.

The first closure was due to a traffic accident, police said. A pickup truck parked in a non-parking zone was hit by another vehicle.

Officials and local residents are wary that more of the social media hijinks could begin, potentially encouraging others to break the law as well.

So far, speeding and street takeovers have plagued the road as climbers and cyclists have climbed past the bridge’s protections.

In some of the most visible incidents, a person clipped someone else in the middle of the street as traffic continued, and KTLA’s Jennifer McGraw even detonated fireworks or explosive devices near her during one report.

In response, police have cracked down on speed demons and sometimes restricted access to the bridge, which neighbors seem to support.

“They’re really out and about in full force, motorcycles, cars, even on foot,” commented a neighbor.

Another Angeleno lamented the way people handled the $588 million bridge connecting Boyle Heights to downtown LA

“It’s a shame the residents of Los Angeles County don’t have more civic sense for the engineering feat that has happened behind them,” said one man.
