K-Rail Work Zone Implementation at Wilshire Blvd./San Vicente Blvd.

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.

Last Updated



On Saturday, January 16, Wilshire Blvd. will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Carson Rd. and La Jolla Ave. This traffic control will support the implementation of a new work zone within the Wilshire/San Vicente intersection.

Please note: this work zone will replace the current configuration within the intersection. Work is anticipated to occur between 5am and 9pm.



  • January 16, 5am through 9pm
