Santa Monica Blvd. Temporary Lane Reductions through Mid-October

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.


The construction contractor will install landscaping on the north side of Santa Monica Blvd. beginning on Tuesday, October 6. This work will require temporary lane reductions on Santa Monica Blvd. between Century Park West and Moreno Dr. for an estimated two weeks.
