Construction may impact traffic at many locations along the route between the Wilshire/Western and Century City/Constellation stations. At the eastern end near Wilshire/Western, support for tunneling continues near Manhattan Place. K-rail work zones will remain on Wilshire Boulevard near Rimpau and Plymouth boulevards through 2021. Support for tunneling and cross passage construction continues in the area. Wilshire Boulevard has been reduced to two lanes in each direction between June Street and Muirfield Road, and Windsor and Plymouth boulevards.
Station construction also continues at Wilshire/La Brea, where staging yards are located on both sides of the intersection. Work is also currently occurring in a construction zone along the north side of Wilshire Boulevard. Construction may necessitate weekend lane closures on Wilshire Boulevard at La Brea Avenue.
Work also continues at the future Wilshire/Fairfax station, where appendage structures housing vital systems are being built. Ogden Drive may experience periodic closures and Orange Grove Avenue will remain closed south of Wilshire Boulevard through January 2022.
Other station appendage work is occurring along the southwest corner of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Diego Way and Spaulding Avenue through early August.
Subway station and appendage construction also at Wilshire/La Cienega, and in a staging area at Wilshire/Gale. Lane reductions on Wilshire Boulevard may be implemented between La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards. Gale Drive will also be intermittently closed north of Wilshire Boulevard.
Farther west at Wilshire/Rodeo, construction is ongoing underground. Two lanes will be open in each direction on Wilshire Boulevard between Beverly and Crescent drives from 10:45 a.m. to midnight, and one lane in each direction will be open from midnight to 10:45 a.m.
Support for tunneling continues at the Century City/Constellation station. Traffic controls and lane reductions may be in place around work zones near Constellation Boulevard and Avenue of the Stars.
