Metro has announced new work at many locations along the subway system, which is expected to open between Wilshire/Western and Wilshire/La Cienega in late 2024. Construction is ongoing daily at street level and in construction yards.
Near Wilshire/La Cienega, decking removal and street restoration work is scheduled to begin on the weekend of April 28-May 1, and continue for eight consecutive weekends. Wilshire Boulevard will be closed from 9 p.m. on Friday through 6 a.m. on Monday between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards. Plans call for the decking removal to begin near San Vicente Boulevard and progress westward toward La Cienega Boulevard.
Subway construction is also ongoing in staging yards at Wilshire/La Cienega and in a work zone along the south side of Wilshire Boulevard. South Gale and Hamilton drives may be closed intermittently at Wilshire Boulevard. Two lanes will remain open in each direction between La Cienega and San Vicente boulevards.
Street restoration work continues at Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax. Crews are working in staging yards and at street level at both locations. Works zones are located in the curb lanes and in the center at different sites along Wilshire Boulevard in the Miracle Mile. Wilshire Boulevard has been reduced to two lanes in each direction throughout much of the area, including between Spaulding Avenue and San Diego Way.
