Jet Grouting Moves East on Wilshire Blvd. (Extended Notice: 8 - 12 weeks)

Summary

Beginning Friday, February 17, jet grouting activities will continue on Wilshire Blvd. in new locations at Wilshire Blvd./Wilton Pl. and Wilshire Blvd./St. Andrews Pl. Work zones will be established in the center lane of Wilshire Blvd. using K-rail, fencing and sound blankets, as well as new striping and traffic control in the area. The work zones at Wilshire Blvd./Rossmore Ave. and Wilshire Blvd./Windsor Blvd. will be removed during the same weekend.

Jet grouting is a construction process that uses high-pressure air and grout to create a deep soil-concrete block. The purpose of jet grouting is to reinforce and strengthen the soil with concrete to support tunneling. This work has been done in the Wilshire Blvd./ La Brea Ave. station area, and at Wilshire Blvd./Rossmore Ave. and Wilshire Blvd./Windsor Blvd. Jet Grouting will occur in 16 locations along the alignment from Western Ave. to La Cienega Blvd. Each operation will take approximately 8 to 12 weeks.
