  1. It would seem like after all of the years this event (and others) have shut this station down, that there would be some type of plan to actually use the second mezz level.

    The building on the northeast corner has sat for twenty years. Develop it, but leave Powerhouse alone!

  2. It amazes me how the City of Los angeles as well as other cities in Southern California take so long to set up a event and then tear it down. One only needs to go to Honolulu , Hawaii and see how the Aloha Festival and Parade are set up and torn down within hours if not minutes. at the end of the Parade one must get get belongings and personal body together because as the last unit passes it is followed by street swipers and the police immediately. The street is then open to traffic. The festival is not moved into the street until around 4 or 5pm and ends promptly at 11pm. Again , within minutes traffic is allowed on the street.

    Yes, the Oscars do involve a lot of construction but is it more fluff than necessity? could it be achieved in one day instead of several? And why is a major Subway Station need to be shut down? There is more preparation and disruption for these events than a presidential visit it seems.

    • Hi Roy,

      Regular service will resume with the start of Monday service.
