Weekly Update 8/16/19

Holiday moratorium exemption request received from Metro.

On July 31, the City received a formal request from Metro for an exemption to this year’s holiday moratorium, which would allow work to continue after the Thanksgiving holiday through New Year’s Eve. No work would occur on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, or New Year’s Day. The project anticipates going to City Council for a decision in September.

Wilshire/Rodeo Station

Utility work and potholing continues on Wilshire.

Potholing, relocating sewer and water lines, and replacing storm drain laterals on Wilshire are in progress between El Camino and Crescent. Work will be done in stages over the next three months and will require some turn restrictions and closures of traffic lanes, crosswalks, and sidewalks. Work hours are weekdays from 9 am to 4 pm and 8:15 pm to 7 am. On weekends, work hours are from 8 am to 8 pm, with noisy activities restricted to 10 am to 6 pm.

Geotechnical instrumentation installed near Wilshire/Rodeo.

Devices to monitor the effects of excavation and tunneling will be installed at multiple locations around the future Wilshire/Rodeo station. This work will be performed intermittently on weekdays from 7 am to 4 pm over the next few months.

N. Cañon closure begins September 9.

As early as September 9, N. Cañon will no longer be accessible from Wilshire. A 20-foot soundwall will be installed at the intersection of N. Cañon and Wilshire in an effort to mitigate traffic and noise for a minimum of two years during major construction. N. Cañon will be reconfigured into a cul-de-sac while pedestrian access will be maintained on both sides of the closure. Sidewalk closures and parking impacts may be required during installation of the closure. Work hours will be weekdays from 7 am to 4 pm and weekends from 8 am to 6 pm.

Canon Closure 8-16-19

Piling installation to begin in September.

Piling operations are anticipated to begin as early as September 23, 2019. During this work, a rig will be used to drill holes 100 feet below the surface all around the future Rodeo station box. A crane will lower steel beams into each hole, then the hole will be backfilled with concrete to provide support during excavation for the station. This activity will require full-time lane closures on Wilshire and some weekend closures at the Beverly and S. Cañon intersections. K-rail barriers will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the completion of this work, which is expected to be May of next year. Two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction on Wilshire during this work. For more details, please see Metro’s latest construction notice.

Wilshire/La Cienega Station

Closures anticipated near Wilshire.

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

  • North Gale will be closed from 6 am to 10 pm on weekdays and Saturday.
  • Curbside and middle lanes in both directions on La Cienega near Wilshire will be intermittently closed from 9 am to 3:30 pm on Wednesday through Friday.
  • Wilshire will be reduced to two lanes in each direction from La Cienega to Carson from 6 am to 10 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
  • Eastbound Wilshire from Gale to San Vicente and westbound Wilshire from San Vicente to Tower will be reduced to one lane from 8 am to 7 pm on Saturday. Parking on Wilshire will also be restricted.

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

Concrete and material delivery begins in September.

Next month, excavation is expected to be completed and construction will begin on the La Cienega station including concrete placement and material deliveries such as rebar. To support this work, Wilshire will be reduced to two lanes in each direction from 7 am to 4 pm, and one lane in each direction from 10 pm to 7 am. Parking and turn restrictions will also be required.

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