Metro is advising about new work occurring in the city of Beverly Hills through May 7.
Gale Drive will be closed north of Wilshire Boulevard daily from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. while crews install a utility duct bank. The north crosswalk will also be closed to pedestrians. Access to driveways will be maintained.
Crews are also working at many other locations on the Purple Line Extension subway project under Wilshire Boulevard. In Beverly Hills, subway station construction continues at Wilshire/Rodeo, where excavation has been occurring, and Wilshire/La Cienega, where crews are building underground appendage structures that house vital systems. Lane reductions are in place in the area. 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 is 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 construction between La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards. The first hour will be validated free by mentioning Metro when entering the structure.
Farther east, crews are also working on future subway stations at Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire La/Brea. Concrete deliveries will continue in April. Intermittent lane reductions on Wilshire Boulevard and interconnecting side streets may be necessary.
In the Miracle Mile, Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction through September between Detroit and June streets. Lane reductions may be implemented on weekends on Wilshire Boulevard between La Brea and Highland avenues.
Crews are also working underground near Wilshire/Western. Intermittent lane closures may be necessary on Wilshire Boulevard between Western Avenue and Manhattan Place, and on Manhattan Place north of Wilshire Boulevard.
