The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) has announced construction updates for the Metro Purple Line for the month of October. One of the most visible signs of the ongoing construction is that trees along Wilshire Boulevard and on adjacent streets within the work area will be removed. They are expected to be replaced in 2022.
Metro spokesperson David Sotero told the Courier that the 28 tree removals on Wilshire Boulevard do not extend to Rodeo Drive. Rather, the farthest west for the tree removal will be in front of the Union Bank building, closest to the Wilshire/Beverly intersection.
