Tonight, residents of homes and condominiums in Westwood and Century City who may be affected by construction for the Westside's "Subway to the Sea" will have an opportunity to hear "how homes, businesses, water lines and other structures will be protected" during the course of the drilling for the project, according to the Daily News.
Based on current route plans, most of the tunneling would take place beneath Wilshire Boulvevard, digging 20 feet down beneath the surface. Metro says they will compensate landowners if the tunnel is dug beneath their property, and wants to assure residents and workers that "the subway construction, and daily operation of subway trains, would not be noticeable inside homes or on streets."
Previous meetings were held last fall to discuss station locations and entrances, connections to and from the stations, and other issues. Tonight's meeting is at 6 p.m. at Westwood United Methodist Church, 10497 Wilshire Blvd.
