Unless you enjoy traffic jams, you will want to stay far, far away from the intersection of Wilshire and Sepulveda Boulevards on Friday and Saturday, April 8 and 9…and for the next year.
Friday, April 8, at 10 p.m., a contractor will begin placing K-rails and installing temporary lighting and signals there. For 12 hours, all traffic signals will be turned off at the intersection and traffic control officers will direct traffic.
When the work is done, Wilshire will be reduced by one center lane in each direction. All turn lanes will remain. This reduced traffic configuration is expected to be in place for one year. Expect two lane closures on eastbound and westbound Wilshire from Bonsall to Veteran, and the reduction of Sepulveda to one lane in each direction from Constitution to Ohio.
— with thanks to George Wolfberg, president of the Santa Monica Canyon Civic Association for the warning.
