Installation of Instrumentation Poles along Tunnel Alignment


The design-build contractor is continuing with the installation of geotechnical instruments along the tunnel alignment from Century City to Wilshire Blvd. and La Cienega Blvd. in Beverly Hills. Ten-foot poles with geotechnical instruments will be temporarily installed on public sidewalks within this area in order to monitor ground movement, settlement, and other geological impacts during major construction. Each pole and instrument will be in place for approximately one month before being removed and relocated. Each pole's installation and removal will require intermittent closures of traffic lanes, sidewalks, on-street parking spaces, and alleys. Sidewalks will continue to be accessible once poles are in place. 



  • Ten-foot geotechnical instrumentation poles to be installed on sidewalks on Wilshire Blvd., Young Dr., Lasky Dr., S. Moreno Dr., Charleville Blvd., Spalding Dr., Linden Dr., Swall Dr., Wetherly Dr., Oakhurst Dr., Bedford Dr., N. Canon Dr., Beverly Dr., Doheny Dr., and Brighton Wy. (see pink area on map).


  • Beginning March 2021 through late 2022*

  • Saturdays: 8am to 7pm
  • No work will take place on City Holidays


  • Intermittent lane, sidewalk, on-street parking spaces, and alleys closures will be required during installation and removal of poles.
