Geophysical Surveys in Century City

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.


Metro contractors will conduct geophysical surveys along the tunnel alignment of the Purple Line Extension Section 3 on Santa Monica Blvd., from Monday, May 18 through Sunday, May 24 from 9pm to 6am.


Date: May 18 to 24

Work Hours: 9pm to 6am

 Traffic Controls: 

  • Intermittent lane reductions on Santa Monica Blvd. between S. Beverly Glen Blvd. and Fox Hills Dr.
  • One left turn lane maintained from Century Park West to westbound Santa Monica Blvd.
  • Driveway access will be maintained.
