Wilshire/La Cienega Station

Decking work complete on Wilshire Boulevard, sidewalk restoration begins

Decking work was completed last weekend, which means that there will no longer be complete weekend closures on Wilshire Boulevard. Now that the decking is finished, most work in the area will take place behind the existing construction barriers.

Sidewalk restoration will take place beginning Friday, January 12 to Sunday, January 14. The work will take place on the south side of Wilshire Boulevard between Gale Drive and Tower Drive. Lane reductions will be in place. Eastbound Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to one lane between Hamilton Drive and San Vicente Boulevard.

Bus Stops

  • The 20 and 720 buses remain relocated to eastbound at Wilshire Boulevard near Stanley Drive and westbound at Wilshire Boulevard near San Vicente Boulevard
  • The 105 and 705 buses are relocated for the next eight to ten months to northbound La Cienega Boulevard and Gregory Way

Wilshire/Rodeo Station

Soil sampling and utility relocation work continues on Wilshire Boulevard

Workers will be drilling to collect soil samples that will be used to guide Metro Purple Line subsurface construction on the eastbound side of Wilshire Boulevard between N. Canon Drive and N. Crescent Drive. The work is scheduled to take place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., beginning on Tuesday, January 16 through Thursday, January 18.* The work is anticipated to continue at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and N. Canon Drive on Friday, January 19, resuming Monday, January 22 and conclude Wednesday, January 24.*

Work to move utility lines in preparation for construction activities will continue on Wilshire Boulevard between Crescent Drive and Beverly Drive. The work is scheduled to take place 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., on Wednesday, January 17.*

This work will require traffic lane reductions, but local access for drivers and pedestrians will be maintained outside of construction zones. Be sure to watch for changes to traffic patterns, and respect signs and barriers for your safety.

Bus stops relocated to accommodate construction work

Four bus stops for Metro Rapid Bus 720, Metro Local 20 and Antelope Valley (ATVA) 786 are being relocated to accommodate construction of the Wilshire/Rodeo Station. Beginning Sunday, January 14, 2018, riders will be able to access these lines at the following locations:

  • Stops for Metro 20/720 and ATVA 786 located east of Beverly Drive, westbound and eastbound on Wilshire Boulevard will be relocated between Rexford Drive and Crescent Drive.
  • Stops for Metro 20/720 and ATVA 786 west of Beverly Drive, westbound and eastbound on Wilshire Boulevard will be relocated between Camden Drive and Rodeo Drive.

These changes are for stops located in both directions on Wilshire. Signs will be posted at existing stops with location changes. A map of the stop changes is below:
