Olympic Blvd Closed To One Lane In Each Direction West Of The 405

LA closes Olympic Blvd to one lane in each direction (west of the 405) on a weekday, gives no advanced notice, and whenever you see these workers, nine out of ten of them are just standing around doing nothing.

Why weren’t signs put up on Olympic Blvd yesterday warning us? A few months ago, Olympic Blvd through Century City was closed to one lane westbound for about ten days. No notice given. No explanation was available online.

As a major employer on Olympic Blvd notified its employees and tenants this morning: As you’re now probably aware, Olympic Blvd. is closed for street repair in front of our building. Building Management did not receive advance notice of this work. Yesterday afternoon they spotted (along with some of our own employees) a notice taped to a pillar near the building. The notice did not specify a full street closure, just street work that necessitated no parking along Olympic. We apologize for the inconvenience this unplanned work has caused.

The notice specified work today, September 3, and on Saturday, September 6. Given the lack of information provided by the city on this project, however, please be prepared to find alternate routes to the building for the remainder of the work week, just in case.
