Curb and bus lane work on the eastbound lane of Wilshire Boulevard near Crenshaw will begin today, Saturday September 13, and continue for a week. Traffic will be reduced to one lane for the Metro contractor to remove and replace the concrete bus lane and curb. Bus stops will be relocated and traffic on Crenshaw will also be slowed greatly. The construction will occur from 7 am – 8 pm daily, probably through next weekend, September 21, so avoid the area if at all possible. More information at the BRT Website.

Reroute your travels to avoid the area if at all possible. More information at the Metro Website.
