If you live in the area in Santa Monica, please read this closely — this is a weeklong closure. Yes, it may be a pain in the rear quarters for some folks, but it’s also a sign that construction of the second phase of the Expo Line between Culver City and Santa Monica continues at a brisk pace.
The closure of the bike path that runs along the west side of the I-405 will be extended until Sunday, December 22, due to Los Angeles Department of Water and Power work on a valve in the area.
Attention all cyclists: the bike path along the west side of the southbound I-405 from Waterford St. to Constitution Ave. will be closed from Monday, Oct. 21 to Saturday, Nov. 30 due to construction of a drainage system at Waterford/Church.
Construction will require excavation, saw cutting of the sidewalk and potholing for utilities.
The detour route for cyclists is: north on Church Lane, right to eastbound Montana, right to southbound Sepulveda, and right to westbound Constitution.
The detour routes for pedestrians is: north on Church Lane, left on Sunset, left on Barrington, left on San Vicent, and left on Wilshire.
The intersection of 1st Avenue and Santa Clara Street in Arcadia will be closed starting next Monday, September 9. The closure will be in place for six months as Foothill Gold Line Extension Construction Authority crews construct the light rail grade crossing improvements through the intersection.
Additionally, Front Street between Santa Clara Street and St. Joseph Street will permanently close in September. This will be the location of the parking structure and transit plaza adjacent to the future Arcadia Gold Line Station. Click here to view the associated construction notice.
