On Saturday, September 17th, the design-builder will implement the work site traffic control for jet grouting at Wilshire Boulevard and Arden Boulevard. This operation will involve the placement of k-rail (concrete barriers) and street restriping in the center island of Wilshire Blvd and reduce Wilshire to two lanes in each direction between Rossmore Blvd and Lucerne Blvd for approximately 6-8 weeks.
