Beverly Hills – As construction of the One Beverly Hills residential and hotel development project moves forward, motorists can expect modified traffic patterns that may cause some delays along Wilshire Boulevard beginning October 16, 2023.
Since last year, site preparation activities have been underway for the project, which will include a mix of luxury residences, hotel rooms, and landscaped gardens across the site’s 17.5 acres. Slated to open in 2027, the project site sits adjacent to the Beverly Hilton and Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills near the intersection of North Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard.
Beginning the week of October 16th and continuing through March, the project’s construction team will be working to relocate utility lines along Wilshire Boulevard. This work will take place in the right-of-way and will consist of trenching and pipe installation from the western City limit to Whittier Drive.
To complete this work, existing landscaped medians and gateway monument signs along Wilshire Boulevard will be temporarily removed. The six Date Palm trees located in the median will also be preserved and stored for future re-planting.
Throughout the course of the work, intermittent lane closures will occur in a phased approach. The first phase will consist of a one-lane closure in each direction along Wilshire Boulevard to Trenton Drive Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The second phase will involve longer-term closures of two lanes on Wilshire Boulevard (alternating between east and westbound directions) and eastbound left turn restrictions at Whittier Drive and Trenton Drive. While the lane closures during this phase will be continuous, active work will be occurring Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.
