Work on the Purple Line Extension subway project continues in June, and Metro has provided an overview of work occurring this month.
Utility relocation work has begun on the third and final section of the project between Century City and the Veterans Administration hospital in Westwood. As part of the initial work, Metro will relocate and upgrade sewer lines and storm drains on Wilshire Boulevard and Gayley Avenue. The construction is occurring on weekends from Friday at 11 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m. It consists of cutting using saws, demolition and trenching of the existing roadways. Construction will be done in stages and updates will be provided when new information is available. Utility service and building access will be maintained near construction sites.
In Century City, excavation continues at the future Century City/Constellation station. The work is occurring 24 hours underneath Constellation Boulevard and traffic lane closures have been implemented in the area. Constellation Boulevard remains open to vehicles between Century Park West and Century Park East.
Work also continues at future subway stations at Wilshire/Rodeo and Wilshire/La Cienega. Early station construction is ongoing underground at Wilshire/Rodeo. Crews are working on rooms and structures that house vital systems at Wilshire/La Cienega. Long-term lane reductions have been implemented. Through late 2022, Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards.
Work on structures housing vital systems is also occurring at future subway stations at Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Brea. Intermittent lane reductions on Wilshire Boulevard may be necessary near both future station sites. Orange Grove Avenue remains closed through 2022. Ogden Drive will be closed intermittently south of Wilshire Boulevard.
