    - Advertisement -

    ***UPDATE*** Traffic signals at Melrose Ave and La Cienega Blvd will be temporarily disabled on Monday, April 3 between 9am – 3pm. The date was moved from March 30, 2023, due to rain. Construction workers will remove the signal poles on the northeast and southeast corners. There will be traffic control officers on site to guide vehicles and pedestrians through the intersection.

    According to a WeHo Design District Streetscapes construction notice, rain forced the construction to reschedule Stage 4 mobilization and Stage 5 demobilization efforts from March 28th to Thursday, March 30 and Friday, March 31, 2023.

    Stage 4 Mobilization will remove parking and set up traffic control.

    Stage 5 Demobilization will consist of barricade removal and lane striping. Parking will be restored on March 31, 2023.

    There will be saw-cutting noise as the project begins tree removals on April 3, 2023.

    The City of West Hollywood commenced work on the Design District Streetscape & Undergrounding Project, a major infrastructure project to implement the recommendations of the adopted West Hollywood Design District Streetscape Master Plan.

    The Master Plan was designed to improve the overall aesthetics and mobility of the commercial district known as West Hollywood Design District, with the goal of strengthening the economic vitality of the district. Key features of the project include pedestrian and bicycle safety improvements; new pavement and sidewalks; distinctive trees and landscaping; upgraded street furniture and streetlights; smart city infrastructure installation; utility undergrounding work; and the creation of new public gathering places with integrated public art.

    Design District Streetscape construction began in May 2022 on Melrose Avenue at N. San Vicente Boulevard and moved east towards N. Croft Avenue (just east of N. La Cienega Boulevard where the City of West Hollywood meets the City of Los Angeles). The project includes rebuilding the entire sidewalk and roadway. Sidewalks will be significantly widened in most areas and decorative concrete will be installed. There will also be new roadway paving and striping, signal modifications, landscaping, LED streetlights, EV Charging stations, in-roadway warning lights, transit shelters, and a gathering space with artwork.

    Construction on utility undergrounding began in April 2022 on Melrose Avenue at N. Doheny Drive and moved east toward N. Robertson Boulevard. The project includes improvements such as installing new underground conduits and vaults for Southern California Edison, Charter Communications, and AT&T services. When completed, overhead wires and power poles will be removed, and new roadway paving and striping will be completed.

    Impacts during construction include parking restrictions, temporary traffic lane closures and/or temporary narrowing of pedestrian walkways, construction noise during work hours, and removal and alteration of some temporary outdoor dining (OUT Zone) areas.

    All businesses will remain open during construction and public parking will be available at the West Hollywood Park five-story structure, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard.
