Weekly Update 1/15/21

Wilshire/Rodeo Station

New hours in effect for nighttime work on Wilshire.

On Tuesday, December 1, City Council approved adjusting the allowable work hours for construction on Wilshire Blvd. Due to the new county COVID orders establishing a 10 pm curfew for a minimum of three weeks, the impacts caused by construction are expected to be less impactful. As a result, Metro may begin work at 10 pm and remove all traffic control on Wilshire by 10 am. The previously approved work hours were 1 am to 10:45 am. The modified work hours will be in effect while the new curfew restrictions are in place and are expected to expedite the contractor's work while minimizing impacts during the future economic recovery period.

Station excavation in progress beneath Wilshire.

The contractor continues excavating the future Rodeo station below the concrete deck panels on Wilshire. This work is expected to last through the first quarter of 2021. Excavation from deck openings and hauling material from the job site may occur from 10 pm to 10 am daily. Excavation may occur underground 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

South Reeves remains closed at Wilshire.

Over the last few months, the contractor has relocated utilities, installed dewatering wells, installed piles and steel beams, and replaced the street surface on Wilshire between Crescent and El Camino with concrete deck panels. Excavation of the station box will continue below ground over the next several months. The street will remain closed at Wilshire, though access will be provided to the parking garage at 9420 Wilshire. Work hours within the Reeves staging yard are from 1 am to 4 pm daily.

Geotechnical instrumentation being installed in Beverly Hills.

Geotechnical instruments are being installed within the station box and along the tunnel alignment to monitor ground movement, settlement, and other geological conditions. Upcoming areas include Wilshire between Crescent and Doheny. This work will include intermittent closures of traffic lanes, sidewalks, crosswalks, and parking meters. Work hours will be weekdays from 7 am to 4 pm on Wilshire east of Crescent.

Other construction activities continue.

This week, the contractor will be maintaining existing dewatering wells between Beverly and Crescent, as well as continuing to install a ventilation system at the northeast corner of Wilshire and North Canon. This work will include replacing equipment as needed, installing ducts and vents, and erecting sound enclosures. 


Wilshire/La Cienega Station

Weekend work at Wilshire and San Vicente continues.

On Saturday, January 16, Wilshire will be reduced to one lane in each direction near San Vicente. The contractor will be adjusting the existing work zone at the intersection to transition to the next phase of construction. This work is anticipated to occur from 5 am to 9 pm.

Additional closures anticipated near Wilshire.

The following closures* are scheduled to take place during the upcoming week:

  • North Gale will be closed from 3 am to 6 pm on weekdays and Saturday.
  • Westbound Wilshire will be intermittently reduced to two lanes between La Cienega and San Vicente from 3 am to 4 pm on weekdays.
  • Eastbound Wilshire will be intermittently reduced to either one or two lanes between Le Doux and Tower from 3 am to 4 pm on weekdays.
  • Eastbound Wilshire will also be intermittently reduced to one lane between Tower and San Vicente from 8 pm to 7 am and 9 am to 4 pm on weekdays and on weekends from 8 pm Friday to 7 am Monday.
  • Parking will be restricted on eastbound Wilshire between Le Doux and Gale from 7 am to 4 pm on weekdays.

Please use alternative routes and continue to respect construction barriers and detours for your safety.

Lane closures on Wilshire and San Vicente.

The contractor is performing potholing and grouting work at the intersection of Wilshire and San Vicente. K-rail barriers will be in place 24 hours a day at the intersection through at least January. This work will require closures of traffic lanes on San Vicente and Wilshire, including directional closures on some weekends. Residents are encouraged to contact the project team at or (310) 285-2467 for more information.

Metro 20 and 720 bus stop relocated for 18 months on Wilshire.

As of November 1, Metro has temporarily relocated the eastbound 20 and 720 bus stop in front of 8484 Wilshire Blvd. to Wilshire and Willaman and has added a westbound 720 stop at Wilshire and Willaman. This relocation is expected to last for 18 months.


*Due to the dynamic nature of construction, all dates and times are subject to change.
