Geotechnical Boring on Wilshire Blvd.

Last Updated



The Purple Line Extension Subway Project, Section 2 began geotechnical boring work in the City of Beverly Hills in November of 2017. The purpose of geotechnical borings is to gather additional soil information to characterize subsurface conditions, which will help with design and construction. Subsurface samples will be collected, and monitoring equipment will be installed for monitoring prior to and during construction. Lane reductions on Wilshire Blvd. will be required for this work.

Below are the remaining geotechnical boring worksites for January and February:
