Expedited piling and decking work during the COVID-19 public health emergency is ongoing between El Camino and Crescent drives, where Wilshire Boulevard remains closed. Wilshire Boulevard can be quickly restored to allow two lanes in each direction when the “Safer at Home” order is rescinded, or upon request by the city of Beverly Hills.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.
Through Friday, June 5, intermittent lane closures will be implemented at the intersection of Wilshire and San Vicente boulevards. The closures support ongoing tunnel investigation work underneath Wilshire Boulevard. Work hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., weekends. Motorists should expect delays.
Westbound Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to a single lane between La Jolla Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard, and northbound San Vicente Boulevard will be reduced to a single lane from Warner Drive to Wilshire Boulevard.

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.
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.
Tunnel investigation work is also occurring at Wilshire Boulevard and La Jolla Avenue during off-peak hours 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., weekdays, and 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., weekends.

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.
