It didn’t take long for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to draw the ire of some Beverly Hills businesses.

On its first day of saw-cutting work (March 3) on utility relocation for the Purple Line Extension last week, Metro spokesman Dave Sotero confirmed to The Courier that a noise complaint came from the Saban Theatre near Wilshire and La Cienega. After investigating the complaint, Sotero said Metro realized it had exceeded the allowed noise threshold by four decibels. The allowed limit is 64 decibels.

Sotero said the noise levels were addressed by Metro staff by placing additional blankets around the construction site.

“The additional mitigation was put in place that morning and the levels have been in compliance since then,” Sotero said.
