Metro is continuing with the installation of geotechnical instruments in March along the Purple Line Extension tunnel alignment from Century City to Beverly Hills.
Ten-foot poles with geotechnical instruments will be temporarily installed on sidewalks to monitor ground movement, settlement and other geological impacts during major construction. Each pole and instrument will be in place for approximately one month before being removed and relocated. Installation and removal will require intermittent traffic lane and sidewalk closures.
The poles will be installed on Brighton Way, Wilshire and Charleville boulevards, and Young, Lasky, Moreno, Spalding, Linden, Swall, Wetherly, Oakhurst, Bedford, Canon, Beverly and Doheny drives. Two lanes in each direction will be maintained for daytime work on Wilshire Boulevard. Other adjacent streets may be reduced to one lane. Flaggers will be stationed at both ends to allow through traffic in both directions during the installation and removal of the poles.
Construction will start this month on underground appendage structures such as entrances and exits, passageways and utility rooms adjacent to the Wilshire/La Cienega subway station. The work will require intermittent and semi-permanent lane reductions and closures in the neighborhoods around the intersection.
The work is anticipated to be implemented in phases through the third quarter of 2022. During the first phase, which will last through January 2022, Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards. Left turns from Wilshire Boulevard onto Gale Drive and from Tower Drive onto Wilshire Boulevard will be restricted.
Intermittent lane reductions may be also in place on Wilshire Boulevard between El Camino and Crescent drives. Crews are still excavating at the Wilshire/Rodeo subway station in Beverly Hills, and concrete deliveries and pouring are occurring at the Wilshire/La Cienega and Wilshire /Gale staging yards.
Other work continues in staging yards near the Wilshire/Fairfax, Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Western stations, as well as at locations along Wilshire Boulevard.
