Beginning Monday, January 25, work hours at Ogden Yard will increase to 24 hours a day, six to seven days per week. The extended hours will be in place for two months, in order to facilitate tunneling under the Wilshire Boulevard and San Vicente Boulevard intersection. Ogden Yard is located at 6010-6024 Wilshire Boulevard. It was acquired and repurposed as a construction staging yard for the Metro Purple Line Extension project in mid-2020.
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. A temporary ventilation system will run at full speed 24 hours a day during the extended period.
During the extended hours at Ogden Yard, pedestrian access will be maintained, but certain public transportation routes will be affected. For example, the 720 bus stop at Wilshire and La Cienega Boulevards has been temporarily relocated to Willaman Drive. For more information, visit https://www.metro.net/service/advisories/
