Construction on the Purple Line Extension subway project continues as crews complete traffic signal conduit relocation near Westwood and Wilshire boulevards. The work includes demolition and trenching of existing curbs and sidewalks to relocate and install traffic signal conduits. Driveway and parking access will be maintained. Intermittent sidewalk and curb lane closures will be necessary.
Crews are excavating at the site of the future Century City/Constellation subway station and moving underground pipes and infrastructure in the area. Support is also ongoing for twin tunneling machines that are currently excavating the subway tunnels under Beverly Hills.
Construction is ongoing underground at the future Wilshire/Rodeo subway station, and at staging yards near Wilshire Boulevard and Reeves Drive in Beverly Hills. The work may require lane closures on Wilshire Boulevard between El Camino and Crescent drives.
Similar underground construction is ongoing at the subway station near Wilshire/La Cienega. Concrete and material deliveries are expected to become more frequent at staging areas for the project near Wilshire/La Cienega in the coming weeks.
Crews are building appendage structures that house vital systems for the subway stations near Wilshire/La Cienega, Wilshire/Fairfax and Wilshire/La Brea. The underground structures include rooms, passageways and ducts filled with electrical and telecommunication cables in the tunnels. Lane closures are anticipated along Wilshire Boulevard around the station sites.
