Work Zone Installation on Wilshire Blvd./Crescent Heights 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.

Summary

Beginning Saturday, May 9, and continuing through Sunday, May 10, Wilshire Blvd. between La Jolla Ave. and Orange Grove Ave. will be reduced to a single lane in each direction. In addition, McCarthy Vista/Crescent Heights Blvd. from Commodore Sloat Dr. to 5th St. will be reduced to a single lane in each direction. This traffic control will support the implementation of two k-rail work zones in the Wilshire Blvd./Crescent Heights area.

The work zone will be in place through mid-August 2020. While the work zone is in place, McCarthy Vista will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Warner Ave. and Wilshire Blvd., Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to two lanes in each direction from Fairfax Ave. to 400’ west of McCarthy Vista/Crescent Heights Blvd., and southbound Crescent Heights Blvd. will be reduced to one lane between 6th St. and Wilshire Blvd.
