Century Boulevard Near LAX Nightly Closure To Begin July 13

LAX
Access to emergency responders will be maintained at all times. Pedestrians will be rerouted to a safe area outside the construction zone.

Century Boulevard near LAX will be closed between Aviation Boulevard and Bellanca Avenue beginning Monday, July 13, due to a revised construction schedule so that framing installation for the new bridge can take place without danger to vehicles passing beneath. This work is necessary to support the aerial Aviation/Century station.

Work will take place for two weeks from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., Monday through Friday but will affect only one direction of Century Boulevard at a time, according to Walsh/Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC). The west bound closure may begin as early as July 13 and the east bound Monday, July 20.
An estimated 92,800 motorists travel through that intersection on a daily basis. Airport travelers, employees of local businesses and hotel guests are being alerted that they should plan ahead, allow extra travel time and use recommended detours. Detour information is posted with other project information at metro.net/crenshaw.
Detours:
  • If traveling west on Century, turn right at Aviation Boulevard, left at Arbor Vitae Street, left at Airport Boulevard and right at Century Boulevard.
  • If traveling east on Century turn left on Airport Boulevard, right at Arbor Vitae Street, right at Aviation Boulevard and left on Century.
      Access to emergency responders will be maintained at all times. Pedestrians will be rerouted to a safe area outside the construction zone.
Metro Bus service in construction areas may be detoured but Metro will post bus route information on the regular bus stops. For Metro bus service updates call (323) GO-METRO from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Line is a $2.058 billion light-rail line that will connect the Green Line and the Expo Line. It will have eight new stations to serve the Crenshaw, Inglewood and LAX communities. It is expected to open in 2019.

About Metro
Metro is a multimodal transportation agency that is really three companies in one: a major operator that transports about 1.5 million boarding passengers on an average weekday on a fleet of 2,000 clean air buses and six rail lines, a major construction agency that oversees many bus, rail, highway and other mobility related building projects, and it is the lead transportation planning and programming agency for Los Angeles County.  Overseeing one of the largest public works programs in America, Metro is, literally, changing the urban landscape of the Los Angeles region. Dozens of transit, highway and other mobility projects largely funded by Measure R are under construction or in the planning stages. These include five new rail lines, the I-5 widening and other major projects.
