Sidewalk and Lane Closure at Wilshire Blvd. and N. Cañon 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.

Last Updated



The design-build contractor will implement sidewalk and lane closures on Wilshire Blvd. between N. Canon Dr. and Crescent Dr. to install a sidewalk adjacent to the construction staging yard and to reinstall the staging yard sound walls. The closures will take place overnight on Tuesday, January 12, and on Friday, January 15. The north Wilshire Blvd. sidewalk will be closed. Pedestrian access will be maintained outside the closure.
