Westbound lanes on Century Boulevard, between Aviation Boulevard and Bellanca Avenue near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), will be closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weeknights, Jan. 19 through 23, so that concrete can be safely poured for construction of the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project.

The work by Metro and Walsh/Shea Corridor Contractors will create several support columns for the aerial station at Aviation and Century boulevards, two of them at the Century Boulevard median. Eastbound lanes will remain open.

Travelers headed to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) during the five night weeknights are advised to take an alternative route. Detours signs will be posted throughout the duration of the night-time closures.

Westbound detour:

If you are traveling westbound on Century Boulevard turn right at Aviation Boulevard, then turn left at Arbor Vitae Street and turn left again at Airport Boulevard.

Bus service:

Metro buses will not stop at the bus stop on the north side of Century Boulevard between Aviation Boulevard and Bellanca Avenue. Instead they will proceed to the bus stop west of Airport Boulevard on Century Boulevard.

There won’t be pedestrian access on the north side of Century Boulevard. Emergency access will be maintained during working hours and noise levels from construction will be monitored.

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. It is expected to open in 2019.
