Free Sounds! Los Angeles Sound Effects! 4th Bridge

Free Sounds! Los Angeles Sound Effects

I got a sound request from a user on Reddit who said it would be nice to catch some sounds from the 6th Street in Los Angeles but unfortunately, this bridge is gone. The Demolition began in April 2016.

Many of you know that this bridge was an icon for the City of Los Angeles and took places in so many movies like Terminator, The Dark Night Rises and in the probably last Movie Furious 7!

But in the shadow of the 6th Street Viaduct or let’s say just a stone throw away is another great bridge and I think this Bridge will have a great future in many upcoming movies.

The 4Th Street Bridge of Los Angeles

The 4th street bridge was built in 1928 and is one of the few remaining catenary or curved, arch bridges in the city of Los Angeles and reached across the Los Angeles River!

I recorded these free sounds at daytime. I went to all three sides top record the traffic.

First Recordings

I recorded under the bridge on the Santa Fe street side with lots of construction and road traffic.

More people came by and overall it was just more traffic with more warehouses around.
Not far away from the place is a warehouse where parts of Iron Men 2 were filmed.

Second Recordings

2. I drove to the other side of the bridge and I felt like I am in a total different environment!

It stinks, it is dirty and a lot a graffiti everywhere and the road has so many bumps what creates this special sound when the cars and the trucks driving over these street holes. But everything is so authentic and real! It is fun to be here!

Third Recordings

3. I walked to the top of the bridge coming from mission road and walked exactly to the middle of the brigde and record the traffic pass by sound effects.
