Wilshire LaBrea road work

You may have noticed, we’ve been taking a bit of a break here at the Larchmont Buzz to enjoy the summer. We would be remiss, however,  if we didn’t inform the community that the intersection of Wilshire Blvd and La Brea Ave will be closed for much of the coming weekend due to Metro work on the utility relocation for digging of the subway. Traffic will be rerouted per the directives, below.

The northern section of Larchmont Blvd, between Beverly and Melrose will also be closed off this weekend for street repaving.
