Metro buses serving the Westwood/UCLA area continue to be impacted by yesterday’s #SunsetFlood. LADWP has estimated that Sunset Boulevard will remain closed between Veteran and Hilgard avenues for at least the next 24 hours:
Current estimate is that Sunset BV will be closed thru tomorrow. Better est will be possible after more progress is made.

Seems pretty reasonable if you’ve seen photos of the damage:

The issue: a giant sinkhole leaves little room for Metro buses. And then there’s the sharks:
While repairs are made to the broken water main, the following delays and detours remain in effect:
- Metro Rapid 761 and Late Night 233 northbound will detour from Hilgard/Sunset to Beverly Glen, Wilshire, and Veteran to continue north. Southbound buses will use Church Lane, Montana, Gayley, and Le Conte to continue south.
- Lines 2/302 westbound will detour from Hilgard/Sunset to Beverly Glen, Wilshire, and Le Conte to continue west.
- In addition, customers should plan for delays on the 20 and Rapid 720 due to spill-over traffic on Wilshire Boulevard.
