The City of Beverly Hills is undergoing two major constructions projects which when complete, will lead to an even brighter and more dynamic economy for Beverly Hills. This page will update the status of the projects and serves as a reminder that the areas near the construction will remain open for business and need your support.
The Santa Monica Boulevard Reconstruction Project is a planned 18 month project to reconstruct North Santa Monica Boulevard. The City Council-approved project design includes rebuilding the roadway, widening the street and upgrading the century-old drainage system between Doheny Drive and Wilshire Boulevard.
The Project is slated to begin the second week of January 2017. It will proceed in two 9 month phases. The first phase will cover the west portion of the roadway from Walden Drive to Alpine Drive. The second 9 month phase will begin thereafter and cover the roadway from Alpine Drive to the border with the City of West Hollywood.

The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority is constructing an extension of the Purple Line subway which will run primarily underneath Wilshire Boulevard through the Westside of Los Angeles. Section 1 of the Purple Line Extension will include a station at Wilshire and La Cienega Blvds. Section 2 of the Purple Line Extension will include a subway station near the intersection of Wilshire Blvd. and Beverly Drive. The Chamber expects major construction to occur near Wilshire and La Cienega to commence in 2017, including intermittent closures of Wilshire Blvd. for a period of time.
LA Metro has an “Eat Shop Play” program to highlight and support businesses impacted by construction as well as a Business Interruption Fund that can provide compensation to certain qualified businesses in the impact area.
