Metro is temporarily suspending subway construction on the Purple Line Extension subway project in observance of Thanksgiving on Thursday, Nov. 26 and Friday, Nov. 27.
All Metro bus and rail service will operate on a Sunday/holiday schedule on Nov. 26, and regular weekdays service will resume on Nov. 27.
Following the holiday, work will resume at many locations along the route through the Miracle Mile and Beverly Hills. Construction in Beverly Hills will continue through the holidays after the City Council recently granted Metro a waiver. No work will occur on Dec. 10 (the first night of Hanukkah), Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, or if there is a city sponsored event. During the holiday construction period, excavation in the Wilshire/Rodeo station box, hauling, material delivery and utility maintenance will occur, as well the installation of geotechnical instruments.
New hauling hours for removing soil have been announced. From 10:45 a.m. to 4 p.m., two lanes will be open in each direction on Wilshire Boulevard between El Camino and Crescent Drive. From midnight to 10:45 a.m., Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction between El Camino and Crescent drives, when excavation will occur through deck openings along Wilshire Boulevard at Canon Dive, just west of Beverly Drive.
The installation of geotechnical instruments will continue along the tunnel alignment and around the station box area in Beverly Hills to monitor ground movement, settlement and other geological impacts. Instruments are being installed within the public right-of-way and on private property. Through December, installations may occur along Wilshire Boulevard and on adjacent streets east of Crescent Drive. New work hours are weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wilshire Boulevard, and weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at other locations. Intermittent closures of traffic lanes, alleys, sidewalks, crosswalks and parking meters may be required during work hours.

The lane reduction may also be used on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Gale Drive will also be intermittently closed at Wilshire Boulevard to support construction. Work will continue 24 hours in the staging yards.
