Construction is ongoing on the Purple Line Extension subway project, with crews working above and below ground at many locations along the route between Wilshire/Western and Century City.
In Beverly Hills, Gale Drive will be fully closed daily north of Wilshire Boulevard through Friday, May 7, to support the installation of a utility duct bank. The closure will be in place from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m., daily. The north crosswalk will also be closed to pedestrians while the street is closed.
Work is also ongoing on the future subway station at Wilshire/Rodeo, where excavation and other preparatory work is occurring on a future subway station. At Wilshire/La Cienega, crews are building underground appendage structures adjacent to a future station. The structures house vital systems for the future station, and crews have implemented lane reductions in the area to complete the work. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards through fall of 2022.
Metro has announced that parking will be available at 8447 Wilshire Blvd. and 8350 Wilshire Blvd. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to replace metered parking removed on Wilshire Boulevard because of the construction between La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards. The first hour will be validated free by mentioning Metro when entering the structure.
Concrete and material deliveries will also continue at the future subway stations near Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire La/Brea. Intermittent lane reductions on Wilshire Boulevard may be necessary and Ogden Drive will be closed intermittently south of Wilshire Boulevard.
Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Detroit and June streets through September. Hauling and deliveries to and from both La Brea Avenue staging yards will continue. Lane reductions may be implemented on weekends on Wilshire Boulevard between La Brea and Highland avenues.
