Construction crews have made further progress on the Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s David Geffen Galleries. The support infrastructure for the museum’s expansion now covers both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Wilshire Boulevard.
The temporary “falsework” structure is required to support construction of the new building spanning Wilshire Boulevard. With the completion of the falsework, normal traffic flow has been restored in both directions.
Construction also continues on the museum’s walls on both sides of Wilshire, according to a Jan. 20 update from LACMA.
Formwork, rebar installation and concrete pours for above-grade walls continue on the west side of the construction site, north of Wilshire Boulevard, according to the update.
Teams with Clark Construction are completing similar work on the Spaulding lot south of Wilshire Boulevard, and pouring concrete.
