Metro is also alerting motorists and residents about a major street restoration project beginning on April 22 that will require 10 weekends of full closures on Wilshire Boulevard between Highland and La Brea avenues. The road will be closed from Friday at 9 p.m. through Monday at 6 a.m. each weekend for the replacement of decking on Wilshire Boulevard. Traffic will be diverted north to Sixth Street to bypass the closure. For full details, visit mcknbr0fgxh5k0f2vx078zts2980.pub.sfmc-content.com/1guuusythcw/w2hnxunrso4.
Work is also occurring at many other locations along the project route. Crews began installing K-rail barriers on the eastbound side of Wilshire Boulevard last week, east of Sycamore Avenue. The barriers will stay in place for approximately six months. However, the current traffic pattern on Wilshire Boulevard will remain intact. A temporary sidewalk closure will be in place between Orange Drive and approximately 80 feet west of Sycamore Avenue. Access to 5150 Wilshire Blvd. will be maintained west of the closure.
Farther west, Wilshire Boulevard between San Diego Way and Spaulding Avenue will be reduced to two lanes in each direction through April 30. The traffic control supports appendage construction immediately adjacent to the Wilshire/Fairfax subway station.
Work is also ongoing in construction staging areas at the future Wilshire/La Cienega subway station. Concrete and material deliveries to the La Cienega station are expected to continue in April. The current phase of work will impact traffic on Wilshire Boulevard through the third quarter of 2022. Two lanes will be open in each direction between La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards, and Gale Drive will be temporarily closed north of Wilshire Boulevard through April. Crews may implement weekend directional closures on Wilshire Boulevard east of San Vicente Boulevard, but exact implementation dates and durations will be provided in future construction notices.
Work is also ongoing at the future Wilshire/Rodeo and subway station through 2024. Lanes on Wilshire Boulevard will be intermittently closed between El Camino and Crescent drives. Geotechnical instruments are also being installed in the neighborhoods along Wilshire Boulevard to monitor geological impacts.
Utility work is planned on permanent power lines to the Wilshire/Rodeo subway station. Installation will occur along Wilshire Boulevard between Dayton Way and Rexford Drive. Traffic control may also be implemented on Beverly Drive.
Crews are moving utilities, sewers and storm drains in Century City as part of work on the future station. The work is anticipated to last through the third-quarter of 2022. Excavation also continues through early 2023 for the underground station beneath Constellation Boulevard.
