Geophysical Surveys on Santa Monica Blvd. and Comstock 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.


Metro contractors are conducting geophysical surveys to understand subsurface archaeological features in preparation for the Purple Line Extension, Section 3. This work will require temporary lane reductions on Santa Monica Blvd. between Club View Dr. and Pandora Ave. in separate stages. Access to Comstock Ave. from Santa Monica Blvd. will be intermittently closed from August 17 to 21, 9pm to 6am.
