Pile Drilling and Watt Plaza Driveway Weekend Closures


The Purple Line Extension Subway Project, Section 2 design builder (TPOG) has begun construction work in Century City for the future Century City/Constellation station, which will be located on the northeast corner of Constellation Blvd. and Avenue of the Stars.

Pile drilling work began last week and will continue through late November*. During pile drilling, 70- to 90-foot holes are augured into the streets along the perimeter of the launch box.

This work will occur within the full closure on Constellation Blvd and includes using a rig to drill holes into the ground and using a crane to lift piles into these holes. The driveway behind Watt Plaza will be closed for two weekends to complete the piling work across the driveway. Equipment will continue to be hauled from the staging yard to the launch box using flaggers to coordinate with the existing traffic signalization cycle across Century Park East.
