Last Updated



On Friday, March 24 at 9pm through Sunday, March 26 at midnight, the current work zone on the south side of Wilshire Blvd. at La Brea Ave. will be removed and partially replaced with a work zone in the center lanes of Wilshire Blvd. at Wilshire Blvd./Sycamore Ave. This work zone in the center of Wilshire Blvd. will establish a material handling shaft for underground construction of the La Brea Station.
