Phase 3: Wilshire Bl, Fairfax Av to Crescent Heights Bl

Last Updated



Beginning Friday, June 16 at 8pm through Monday, June 19, at 6am there will be a full closure of the Wilshire Blvd. between Fairfax Ave. and Crescent Heights Blvd. Westbound Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to one lane from Spaulding Dr. to San Diego Way starting at 9am on Friday, June 16. This lane reduction allows the contractor to accomplish nosier activities during daytime hours.

In addition, there will be intermittent lane reductions on southbound Fairfax and a sidewalk closure on the west side sidewalk of Fairfax Ave. (southbound side) to support decking of an appendage structure. 

The concrete street decking will create a temporary roadway to allow work to proceed underground while traffic is maintained on the street. This operation requires full closures to safely remove and replace the street with new concrete panels within the intersection. Sidewalk access will be maintained on the north side of Wilshire, with intermittent sidewalk closures and pedestrian detours for the south side.
