Underground Utilities Installation

As part of the Federal government’s Coronavirus Guidance for America, transportation infrastructure is considered an “Essential Critical Infrastructure.” Additionally, transit capital projects are not subject to the State of California’s Stay at Home order, therefore Metro construction projects continue to progress.


Metro Contractors will continue installing underground utilities within Metro’s Division 20 parking lot at 320 S. Santa Fe Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90012 (nearest the 4th Street Bridge). Construction includes excavation, shoring, and backfilling of trenches. This work continues weekdays and will extend to Saturdays through February 2021. Please note there will be intermittent noise during this construction activity.
