Metro continues to excavate underneath Wilshire Boulevard at the site of the future Wilshire/Rodeo subway station. Wilshire Boulevard has been reduced to two lanes in each direction between Beverly and Canon drives to facilitate the removal of soil, and may be reduced to one lane in each direction at night. Reeves Drive will remain closed during excavation, as well as sidewalks on the west side of Reeves Drive and the south side Wilshire Boulevard between Beverly and Reeves drives.
Farther east at Wilshire/La Cienega, subway station construction, material deliveries, instrumentation and concrete pouring remain on track. Construction continues 24 hours at the staging yards at Wilshire /La Cienega and Wilshire/Gale. Ongoing concrete and material deliveries to the Wilshire/La Cienega station box are anticipated to continue this week. Delivery hours are 4 a.m. to 6 p.m.
On Saturday, Sept. 26, a large concrete delivery will occur at the subterranean station box at Wilshire/La Cienega. The work will require additional lane reductions on Wilshire Boulevard between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards from 5 to 10 a.m.
Gale Drive will also be intermittently closed at Wilshire Boulevard to support construction in the Gale staging yard. Work hours are 4 a.m. to 6 p.m. Access to Gale Drive will be maintained from San Vicente Boulevard.
At the intersection of Wilshire/San Vicente, a K-rail enclosure has been implemented in the center lanes through November to support tunnel and mitigation work. All left turns in the intersection will be restricted. Directional closures will be implemented on weekends.
Station construction, hauling and concrete pouring continue at Wilshire/Fairfax. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Diego Way and Spaulding Avenue through summer 2021. The alley between the Johnie’s coffee shop building and the 99 Cents Only store near the northwest corner of Wilshire/Fairfax will be intermittently closed. Ogden Drive will be closed intermittently Monday through Saturday at Wilshire Boulevard and Orange Grove Avenue remains closed south of Wilshire Boulevard.
Hauling and deliveries for station construction are also ongoing in the Miracle Mile. Through February 2021, Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Detroit and June streets, and Orange Drive will be closed north of Wilshire Boulevard, to support the construction of station appendages adjacent to the Wilshire/La Brea station. Daily lane closures supporting station construction will continue through the end of 2020 and Wilshire Boulevard may also intermittently be reduced to a single lane in each direction from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., between Detroit Street and Highland Avenue.
Through Friday, Sept. 25, Sycamore Avenue will be closed 100 feet north of Wilshire Boulevard to support work on a waterline.
A work zone on the west side of Wilshire Boulevard at Rimpau Boulevard is expected to be in place until March 2021. Concrete pouring underground construction in the subway tunnels is occurring in the area.
Tunneling support and street maintenance work is also occurring near Wilshire/Western. Work is ongoing 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 from 4 a.m. to midnight, Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., Saturday and Sunday. Access to businesses will be maintained. Intermittent single-lane closures may also occur on Wilshire Boulevard between Western Avenue and Manhattan Place as a public safety measure to support ongoing excavation and construction.
