As part of the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, Walsh-Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC) will be working on roadway paving, curb, gutter, sidewalk, street lighting, and grade crossing activities on Oak St, north of Florence Av for four weeks. This will require a lane reduction for both northbound and southbound traffic on Oak St, north of Florence Av.
The work will be completed in two phases. The first two weeks, work will be done on the east side of the street, diverting traffic to the west side of the road. It will also require the closure of the northeast sidewalk. The remainder two weeks, work will be done on the west side of the street, pushing traffic to the east side of the road. It will also require the closure of the northwest side walk.
