The Metro K-Rail work zone within the center lanes of the Wilshire Boulevard/San Vicente Boulevard intersection is expected to continue through the month of December. The enclosure will support ongoing tunnel and mitigation work underneath Wilshire Boulevard. All left turns within the Wilshire Boulevard/San Vicente Boulevard intersection will be closed while the K-Rail is in place, and work hours within the K-Rail enclosure are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. for five to six days a week. Directional closures will be implemented on weekends. Additionally, the following land reductions are in place:

• Eastbound Wilshire Boulevard between Tower Drive and San Vicente Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes.

• Westbound Wilshire Boulevard between about 500 ft. west of La Jolla Avenue and San Vicente Boulevard will be reduced to two lanes.

• Northbound San Vicente Boulevard between Warner Drive and Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to a single lane.

• Southbound San Vicente Boulevard between 6th St. and Wilshire Boulevard will be reduced to a single lane.

The following detours are currently in place:

• Northbound San Vicente Boulevard to westbound Olympic Boulevard to northbound La Cienega Boulevard

• Southbound San Vicente Boulevard to eastbound 3rd Street. to southbound Fairfax Avenue

• Westbound Wilshire Boulevard to southbound Fairfax Avenue to westbound Olympic Boulevard
