In Beverly Hills, expedited piling work is ongoing at Wilshire/Rodeo. Wilshire Boulevard remains closed between El Camino and Crescent drives to allow for piling on the south side of Wilshire Boulevard and at the station entrance at Reeves Drive. That piling will continue through mid-May, followed by decking to create a temporary street surface.
Decking will begin near Crescent Drive and crews will move west. The process will require shallow excavation beneath the street surface, installation of steel beams and placement of precast concrete panels to serve as a temporary street surface. The deck panels will allow traffic flow on Wilshire Boulevard while excavation for the future subway station occurs up to depths of 100 feet.
Wilshire Boulevard can be quickly restored to allow two lanes in each direction when the “Safer at Home” order is rescinded, or upon request by the city of Beverly Hills. During the closure, work hours are 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. for drilling, and 9 to 11 p.m. for non-drilling activities. Canon and Reeves drives will remain closed at Wilshire Boulevard for the duration of the closure.
Work is also ongoing at Wilshire/La Cienega. Gale Drive will be intermittently closed to support construction in the Gale staging yard. Access to Gale Drive will be maintained from San Vicente Boulevard. The closure is a public safety measure due to high volumes of vehicles entering and exiting the property.
A new work zone will be created in mid-May on Gale Drive and will remain for approximately four weeks. Additionally, Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Hamilton Drive and San Vicente Boulevard. Left turns and through traffic will be restricted at Gale and Tower drives.
New work zones in the center of Wilshire Boulevard and McCarthy Vista will remain in place through Aug. 1. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Diego Way and La Jolla Avenue, and McCarthy Vista will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Wilshire Boulevard and Warner Drive. Street parking will be restricted in the area.
Near Wilshire/Fairfax, station construction, hauling and concrete pouring are ongoing. Ogden Drive will be closed intermittently at Wilshire Boulevard, Monday through Saturday. Orange Grove Avenue continues to be closed south of Wilshire Boulevard through June.
Near Wilshire/La Brea, hauling, deliveries and tunneling support continues in staging yards on both sides of Wilshire Boulevard. Intermittent lane closures along Wilshire Boulevard and side streets between Highland Avenue and Detroit Street may be necessary to support construction.
Material deliveries and underground construction support continue at a work zone in the center of Wilshire Boulevard just west of Rimpau Boulevard. Wilshire Boulevard has been reduced to two lanes in each direction between June Street and Muirfield Road. The work zone will be in place through September supporting underground construction in the subway tunnels.
Work is occurring 24-hours at a staging yard just west of the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue. Northbound Manhattan Place will be closed intermittently just north of Wilshire Boulevard. Intermittent single-lane closures may also occur on Wilshire Boulevard between Western Avenue and Manhattan Place.
