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


Wilshire/Rodeo Station

Utility relocation continues on Wilshire Boulevard. No work on Sunday due to the LA Marathon.

All work is scheduled to take place Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm.* Regularly scheduled Sunday work will not take place on March 18, due to the LA Marathon.

During work hours, all left turns will be restricted between S. Canon Drive and Crescent Drive and the southbound lane of S.
