A regularly scheduled monthly update on Metro’s Purple Line Construction erupted Wednesday at City Hall’s Municipal Gallery with an unusually large audience of angry parents and students interrogating Metro’s Construction Relations Manager Kasey Shuda, shouting with frustration over plans to tunnel beneath Beverly Hills High School.

Following the construction update by Shuda, the public comment started with a senior resident who identified herself as a doctor. She said she “wants to put a human face” on the construction. She lives near the site of the La Cienega station at Gale Drive. Her condo, she said, is located on a higher floor, above the 20-foot sound wall. “The [sound] wall is not at that level… The entire day, that noise… the hours… until 11 p.m.”
