Here is the construction advisory from Metro:

Pile Installation Begins for Construction of MLK Underground Rail Station for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Corridor Project

Metro and Walsh-Shea Constructors will on Monday, June 16, begin installing soldier piles on the east side of Crenshaw Boulevard, between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker Street. This activity is part of construction for the Crenshaw/LAX Trans Project underground MLK station.

Work is expected to last for one month and is scheduled for Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. the first week. The next three weeks it will be a 24-hour work schedule. Installation of the east side wall will take place with a new technology called cutter-soil mix (CSM).

This activity will take place behind K-rail concrete barriers but may require an occasional night-time lane closure for northbound traffic on Crenshaw Boulevard between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker Street.

WHAT: Installation of CSM wall and soldier piles

WHEN: Starting on Monday, June 16, 2014

This will be a 12-hour activity the first week and then a 24-hour activity for three weeks, weather permitting.

WHERE: Crenshaw Boulevard between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker Street.

DURATION: Approximately 1 month

What to Expect

Emergency vehicles and pedestrian access will be maintained at all times. An occasional northbound lane closure at night may be needed to complete this activity. Noise from construction work activities will be monitored.

Note

Construction may result in changes to bus routes or stop locations. Metro will post signs at affected stops to advise patrons of alternative boarding locations. Real-time information is available at metro.net/service/advisories or 323.GOMETRO.

About Metro

Metro is a multimodal transportation agency that is really three companies in one: a major operator that transports about 1.5 million boarding passengers on an average weekday on a fleet of 2,000 clean air buses and six rail lines, a major construction agency that oversees many bus, rail, highway and other mobility related building projects, and it is the lead transportation planning and programming agency for Los Angeles County. Overseeing one of the largest public works programs in America, Metro is, literally, changing the urban landscape of the Los Angeles region. Dozens of transit, highway and other mobility projects largely funded by Measure R are under construction or in the planning stages. These include five new rail lines, the I-5 widening and other major projects.
