Weekly Update 4/3/20

Wilshire/Rodeo Station

City Council approves temporary full closure of Wilshire.

With reduced traffic throughout the City due to the COVID-19 emergency, the City Council approved an accelerated construction schedule and temporary full closure of Wilshire between Crescent and Beverly, as well as Beverly at Wilshire. This specially authorized work may continue until the City's local emergency is cancelled or within five days of notice from the City Manager or designee. The closure will be in place 24 hours a day and work hours within the closure will be from 8 am to 11 pm every day.

During the closure, signage and traffic control officers will direct drivers to Santa Monica (see map below). Soft closures will be in place along Wilshire to allow for local access.

Metro buses on Wilshire will also be rerouted. Metro lines 20 and 720 will be rerouted to Robertson, Burton, and N Santa Monica (Detour Map for Metro Lines 20 and 720). Metro line 14 will be rerouted to Olympic and Doheny (Detour Map for Metro Line 14). Additional service advisories can be found on Metro's website.

The bus detour routes are near several Beverly Hills Bike Share stations. Through April 30, 2020, new and existing Beverly Hills Bike Share members can ride free 90 minutes per trip with an unlimited number of trips per day. The out-of-hub and out-of-system area fees still apply. To sign-up for the program and view bike share station locations, please visit www.beverlyhillsbikeshare.com. Contact (323) 302-8130 for questions about the program.

Work hours will be weekdays from 7 am to 4 pm, though installations on S. Moreno may need to be completed on weekends from 8 am to 7 pm.
