K-Rail Enclosure on Wilshire Blvd. and Gale Dr.

As part of the State, County, and applicable City orders specific to the COVID-19 response, Metro construction activities are currently included as “Essential” activities.  Therefore, construction activities are continuing as permitted by the local jurisdiction.


Beginning mid-May, a K-Rail enclosure will be in place on Wilshire Blvd. between Tower Dr. and Gale Dr. to create a work zone. This work zone will support ongoing station construction activities underneath Wilshire Blvd., including material delivery and removal from the station. Due to the increase in construction activity on Wilshire Blvd., sound mitigation will be in place. This work zone is anticipated to be in place for 4 weeks.
