Metro is holding a pair of community meetings on Feb. 13 to discuss utility relocation and other work that needs to be done in preparation for construction of the Purple Line Extension’s Wilshire/La Cienega station.
Metro has a “Master Cooperative Agreement” with the city of Los Angeles that governs how Metro and the city will work together during subway construction, including each parties’ responsibilities, timelines and how Metro will reimburse the city for its time.
Metro is hoping to also get such an agreement with Beverly Hills. In the meantime, the Beverly Hills City Council has required that they review each permit request. The Feb. 13 meetings are being held to help inform the public about the work that needs to be done.
