More construction is underway in November for the Purple Line Extension subway project. Work is occurring at many locations along Wilshire Boulevard from Wilshire/Western to Century City. Metro has announced that no work will occur on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
At the eastern end of the project at Wilshire/Western, where the Purple Line currently ends, crews are providing support for tunneling. Northbound Manhattan Place will be intermittently closed just north of Wilshire Boulevard Monday through Friday from 4 a.m. to midnight, and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Access to businesses will be maintained and a signed pedestrian detour has been installed. The closure is a public safety measure to support ongoing excavation and tunnel construction.
Work also continues 24 hours in a construction staging yard near Wilshire Boulevard and Manhattan Place, where crews are providing support for cross passage excavation.
At Wilshire/La Brea, hauling, deliveries and tunneling support will continue in November. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Detroit and June Streets, and Orange Drive will remain closed north of Wilshire Boulevard, through the end of February. Wilshire Boulevard may be reduced to one lane in each direction between Highland Avenue and Detroit Street from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hauling and deliveries to and from the La Brea Avenue construction staging yards will also continue.
Near Wilshire/Fairfax, hauling and concrete pouring continue at the site of a future subway station. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Diego Way and Spaulding Avenue through next August. Intermittent lane closures may be in place to support deck panel maintenance and soil investigations in the Wilshire/Fairfax station area. Anticipated work hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday. Ogden Drive will be closed intermittently Monday through Saturday at Wilshire Boulevard, and Orange Grove Avenue remains closed south of Wilshire Boulevard until January.
A K-rail enclosure in the center lanes of the intersection of Wilshire and San Vicente boulevards is anticipated to remain in place through December. The enclosure supports ongoing tunnel and mitigation work underneath Wilshire Boulevard. Bump outs may be utilized this week, reducing Wilshire Boulevard to one lane in each direction from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Left turns lanes at the intersection will be closed. A second phase of traffic control may be implemented in the intersection in December.
Station construction, material deliveries, instrumentation and concrete pouring continue 24 hours in the staging yards at Wilshire/La Cienega and Wilshire/Gale. Work in the Gale staging yard will require intermittent traffic control on Wilshire Boulevard. Eastbound Wilshire Boulevard may be intermittently reduced to one lane in the area from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 8 p.m. to 7 a.m., on weekdays, and 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends, as needed.
In Beverly Hills, crews are continuing with excavation at the future Wilshire/Rodeo station. Excavation will continue beneath Wilshire Boulevard until crews reach a depth of 100 feet., anticipated during the first quarter of 2021. Underground work is occurring 24 hours at the site.
Work is also occurring on the western edge of Beverly Hills and in Century City. Intermittent lane reductions will be in place on Santa Monica Boulevard between Avenue of the Stars and Moreno Drive for landscaping and tree planting.
