Metro has announced that decking replacement has concluded near Wilshire/La Cienega. Station appendage construction and backfilling continues on Wilshire Boulevard between San Vicente and La Cienega boulevards, and Wilshire Boulevard is reduced to two lanes in each direction. Metro has announced that a K-rail work zone in the area may be removed in mid-October. Additional details will be provided in a future construction notice. Closures on South Gale and South Hamilton Drive may be implemented at Wilshire Boulevard to support appendage work. Work will also continue in staging yards at Wilshire/La Cienega and Wilshire/Gale.
Piling and decking activity on South Beverly Drive has concluded and excavation work has begun on appendage structures adjacent to the future subway station. Excavation activity will require overnight lane and crosswalk closures during weekdays South Beverly Drive. The work is anticipated to take approximately two months to complete. If excavation activity extends beyond the anticipated timeframe, no work will take place during the holidays.
Piling and decking activity is scheduled to begin at the end of September on South Cañon Drive at Wilshire Boulevard and will require weekend closures.
Metro has also announced that decking removal work will begin on Sept. 29 and continue for up to six weekends near Wilshire/La Brea. During the weekend work, Wilshire Boulevard will be closed in both directions between Mansfield and Cloverdale avenues.
