Wilshire/La Cienega Traffic Switch for North Side Piling

Last Updated

06/19/17

Summary

In preparation for the continuation of pile installation for the Wilshire/La Cienega station, the contractor will be moving the K−rail (concrete barriers) and fencing to the north side of Wilshire Blvd. between La Cienega Blvd. and San Vicente Blvd. This installation is anticipated to occur from Friday, June 23 – Sunday, June 25.

This activity will involve the following: 

  • An eastbound directional closure of Wilshire Blvd. at Robertson Blvd. and at Le Doux Rd. from Friday at 9pm– Friday/Saturday at 12 midnight. Local access will be maintained on Wilshire Blvd. between Robertson Blvd. and La Cienega Blvd. 
  • An eastbound directional closure of Wilshire Blvd. between La Cienega Blvd. and San Vicente Blvd. starting midnight on Saturday thru 3pm, Saturday afternoon.
  • Wilshire Blvd. reduced to one lane in each direction between Le Doux Rd. and San Vicente Blvd. from Saturday at 4pm – Sunday at 6am. Left turn restrictions will be in place at the Wilshire Blvd./La Cienega Blvd. intersection, with stop signs at each intersection between La Cienega Blvd. and San Vicente Blvd. 
  • Traffic control officers (TCOs) will be placed at key intersections to facilitate traffic movement throughout the weekend.

Once the K−rail is in place, there will be an approximate 20-foot-wide work zone on the north side of Wilshire Blvd. between La Cienega Blvd. and San Vicente Blvd. The traffic switch will create the following changes to traffic movement for 8−10 months:

  • Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to two lanes in each direction between Stanley Dr. and San Vicente Blvd.
  • Left turn restrictions will be in place at Wilshire Blvd./Le Doux Rd., Wilshire Blvd./Hamilton Dr., Wilshire Blvd./Gale Dr., and Wilshire Blvd./Tower Dr.
  • Metro 720/20 bus stops at Wilshire Blvd./La Cienega Blvd. have been relocated to Stanley Dr. to the west and La Jolla Ave to the east. These temporary stops will remain in place throughout the major construction of the Wilshire/La Cienega station.

Note: Additional construction notices will be published with further details prior to start of major activities.
