Metro and Walsh/Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC) have finished construction of the east side wall and pile installation for the underground Crenshaw/MLK light rail station. Construction equipment is being removed from the work zone on Crenshaw Boulevard between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker Street and the final move will take place on the weekend of September 13 through 15. From there, WSCC moves to the west side of the boulevard to continue utility relocation and, later on, underground walls and pile installation.

Open During Construction: Healthcare Medical S&E

Construction continues along Crenshaw Boulevard for the Crenshaw/LAX Line, which means fencing and blocked lanes in order for work to proceed on the underground portion of the rail line. Though the area around the east side of Crenshaw north of Stocker Street may be difficult to navigate, the businesses located there are absolutely open during construction and worth visiting.

Some of the businesses in the area have been around for quite some time and provide important services for those in the neighborhood — and many of the merchants also live in the community. Over the next few months, we’ll be highlighting some of the Crenshaw businesses on The Source. The video below features Healthcare Medical S&E, located at 4108 Crenshaw Boulevard.

To access this location, you can park at Baldwin Hills Crenshaw. Limited street parking is also available along Stocker Street. Or take transit: Metro Bus 40, 210 and Rapid 710 travel through the area and the stop at the corner of Crenshaw/Stocker.
