Crenshaw to LAX construction continues with street closures at Rodeo Road and Crenshaw Boulevard for two weeks. The closure began on Friday, October 24 and continues for 14 consecutive days. During this time, north and south bound traffic traveling on Crenshaw Boulevard will not be disrupted, but east and west bound traffic on Rodeo Road will be re-routed. Foot traffic as well as access to local businesses will also remain undisrupted. Detours during the 14-day closure will be as follows:
If traveling eastbound on Rodeo Road, turn right at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, left at Western Avenue, and right at Exposition Boulevard.
If traveling westbound on Rodeo Road, turn right at Western Avenue, turn left at Jefferson Boulevard, turn left at La Brea Avenue, and then right at Rodeo Road.
Construction along Crenshaw Boulevard began on May 2 on a stretch between Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Stocker. The 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project is a $2.058 billion-light rail that will connect Metro’s Expo and Green Lines with eight new stations. When the Crenshaw/LAX line opens to the public in 2019, passengers and customers will be able to travel to work, medical care, entertainment, shopping, school and other activities all over the entire Los Angeles region. It also will help revitalize the local and regional economy.
