Sewer Maintenance on Wilshire Blvd. and La Brea Ave.

As part of the Federal government’s Coronavirus Guidance for America, transportation infrastructure is considered an “Essential Critical Infrastructure.” Additionally, transit capital projects are not subject to the State of California’s Stay at Home order, therefore Metro construction projects continue to progress.

Summary

Beginning Friday, February 19 at 9pm, and continuing through Monday, February 22 at 6am, multiple lanes within the Wilshire Blvd. and La Brea intersection will be closed. This closure will support sewer maintenance on the north side of the intersection. South Sycamore Ave. and South Orange Dr. will also be closed at Wilshire Blvd. Left turns from westbound Wilshire Blvd. to southbound La Brea Ave. will be restricted over this time.
