Wilshire Blvd. Sidewalk Temporary Closed at Fairfax 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.


Beginning Friday, August 14 at 9am and continuing through Monday, August 17 at 6am, the sidewalk in front of 6100 Wilshire Blvd. will be closed. At the same time, southbound Fairfax Ave. will be reduced to a single lane at Wilshire Blvd. Eastbound Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to a single lane between San Diego Way and Fairfax Ave. This traffic control supports the construction of a pedestrian ramp on the southwest corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Ave.



  • Continuous, from 9am on August 14 to 6am on August 17


  • The southwest corner of Wilshire Blvd. and Fairfax Ave.
