This past weekend, Metro Board Chair Butts accompanied Beverly Hills Mayor Friedman and other Beverly Hills officials on a visit to the future Wilshire/Rodeo Station. Metro and the City of Beverly Hills worked together to execute a full closure of Wilshire Blvd at the Rodeo station box in order to expedite piling and decking activities during the Safer At Home Emergency Order.
Decking is anticipated to be completed in early June. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Safer at Home order, decking was anticipated to be performed during weekend closures from August 2020 through January 2021. For local businesses in this area, the operation has dramatically reduced the impact of weekend construction that they would have normally endured until early next year.
Bird's eye view of the difference four days of work makes at Wilshire/Rodeo. The full closure of Wilshire Blvd. between North Beverly and North Crescent has allowed us to speed up construction and will help minimize future construction impacts to local businesses. pic.twitter.com/EgxZRE1pvd
