Sidewalk Closure at Wilshire Blvd./N. Canon Dr.

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.


The contractor continues with excavation of the underground station and requires sidewalk and lane closures in order to install additional ventilation. Beginning on Monday, October 26, the Wilshire Blvd. north sidewalk adjacent to the N. Canon staging yard will be closed on weekdays through November 6.* Additionally, Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to one lane westbound on weekdays from 8pm to 7am from Crescent Dr. to Beverly Dr.
