Since piling began on October 21, the design-builder has successfully installed 28 piles on the north side of Wilshire Blvd. Due to the holiday moratorium on construction, pile drilling has stopped and will resume in early January 2020. The contractor is currently working to restore the street to its original state, which includes installation of the permanent street lights, traffic signals, removing the k-rail barrier, paving and restriping the street, and restoring sidewalks, curbs, and gutters. All restoration will be completed prior to Thanksgiving Day. No construction work will occur in the public-right-of-way between Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day.
When construction resumes in January, the following activities will be necessary prior to the start of piling on the north side of Wilshire Blvd: re-installation of k-rail, temporary street lighting, and traffic signals, and restriping Wilshire Blvd. for two lanes eastbound and two lanes westbound. Pile drilling is anticipated to restart on January 9, 2020 through March 2020*.
Operations will shift to the south side of Wilshire Blvd. in April 2020*. Full-time lane restrictions with k-rail will be required 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to two lanes in each direction throughout the completion of this work in July 2020*.
