Roadwork on Sunset Boulevard near UCLA may cause travel delays for patients, visitors and staff trying to reach Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the Medical Plaza complex and other UCLA Health and David Geffen School of Medicine facilities in Westwood.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is scheduled Tuesday, June 25, to begin a project to upgrade underground electrical infrastructure, which requires road excavation. Work is scheduled to be completed in summer 2020.

According to the LADWP, at least one lane of Sunset in each direction will remain open at all times, with construction moving in increments along two sections:

  • Between the 405 freeway and Bellagio Road, moving eastward in roughly 500-foot increments.
  • Between South Beverly Glen Boulevard and Carolwood Drive.

Work hours will be Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3:30 pm and Saturdays from 8 am to 6 pm. At the end of each work day, the LADWP says, all lanes will be restored to traffic.

Drivers may wish to allow for extra travel time or consider alternate routes.

Commuting information is available on the UCLA Transportation website.

More information on this project is available on the LADWP's project website. The project hotline is 213-367-6045 or 1-800-DIAL-DWP (1-800-342-5397).
