Fairfax Avenue Decking

Wilshire/Fairfax Decking: What you need to know

WHAT IS DECKING

The Purple Line Extension Subway Project has been engaged in construction activities along Wilshire Bl and Fairfax Av since May 2014. Work began with advanced utility relocation (AUR), followed by major subway construction in late 2016 with pile installation. The underground piles will provide structural support for the excavation of the subway station box at Wilshire/Fairfax. The next step following piling is decking. Decking is a construction process that entails excavating the street and sidewalks, and replacing them with temporary concrete deck panels. This will allow traffic to continue to flow, while maintaining access to sidewalks and driveways as construction continues underground

In the Wilshire/Fairfax area, decking will occur on Wilshire Bl stretching from Ogden Dr, thru the Fairfax Av intersection, to San Diego Way. This work – excavating Wilshire Bl and placing steel beams and deck panels across the street – will occur over 18 weekends starting in February 2017. Sidewalk access will be maintained; however, some infrequent closures may occur depending on the nature of the work.
