Tunnel Investigation Work on Wilshire Blvd./San Vicente 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 Tuesday, May 26, and continuing through Friday, June 5, the intersection of Wilshire Blvd. and San Vicente Blvd. will experience multiple intermittent lane closures to support ongoing tunnel investigation work underneath Wilshire Blvd. Work hours will be 7am to 4pm, Monday through Friday, and 7am to 11pm on Saturdays and Sundays. This traffic control will be implemented within the City of Beverly Hills as well as the City of Los Angeles.*
