The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is temporarily halting work in public spaces on the Purple Line Extension project in Beverly Hills in compliance with a moratorium on construction from Thanksgiving Day through New Year’s Day. Work will continue within the Wilshire/Rodeo station, and at other locations along the subway alignment outside of Beverly Hills.
At the eastern end of the project, construction is occurring in work zones in the middle of Wilshire Boulevard between Crenshaw Boulevard and June Street, and Ridgely Drive and Curson Avenue. At Wilshire/La Brea, crews are building the station entrance in a construction staging area at the northwest corner of the intersection. Wilshire Boulevard will continue to be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Orange Drive and Detroit Street. Two lanes remain open in each direction on La Brea Avenue at Wilshire Boulevard.
Construction continues underground on the subway station near Wilshire/Fairfax, and at street level along the south side of Wilshire Boulevard. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes in each direction at La Jolla Avenue, just east of San Vicente Boulevard.
Work is also occurring in construction staging yards near Wilshire/La Cienega. Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards, and may intermittently be reduced to one lane in each direction. Left turns from Wilshire Boulevard to southbound Gale Drive and Tower Drive are restricted, and daily restrictions to northbound Gale Drive may also be in place.
Work also continues on the Westwood/UCLA station and Westwood/VA Hospital station, including excavation, instrumentation and storm drain work. Through Nov. 30, crews will be installing conduits for LADWP temporary power on Wilshire Boulevard near Veteran Avenue from 11 p.m.-6 a.m. and 9 p.m.-6 a.m., Monday through Friday.
