Work is ongoing at many locations along the tunnel alignment under Wilshire Boulevard. In Westwood, crews are relocating underground infrastructure in preparation of subway station construction on the VA Hospital campus. Preliminary construction is also occurring near Wilshire/ Gayley for the future Westwood/ UCLA subway station.
Another subway station on the line will be located in Century City near Constellation Boulevard and Avenue of the Stars. Crews are relocating sewer and storm drains and excavating the future subway station. Excavation and tunneling support is ongoing within construction staging yards at the site. Partial traffic lane closures will be required on Avenue of the Stars and Constellation Boulevard.
Construction is also ongoing in Beverly Hills for the Wilshire/Rodeo and Wilshire/La Cienega subway stations. Work on the Wilshire/Rodeo station will be ongoing through 2024. Construction in the area will require lane closures on Wilshire Boulevard between El Camino and Crescent drives.
