Appendage Work Zone Southwest Fairfax Ave. and Wilshire Blvd.

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 Saturday, August 8 and continuing for one year, Wilshire Blvd. between San Diego Way and Spaulding Ave. will be reduced to two lanes in each direction. Fairfax Ave. will see no traffic impacts; however, a K-Rail work zone will be implemented on the southwest corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Ave. (shown on the map below.) This traffic control supports appendage construction immediately adjacent to the Wilshire/Fairfax Station.
