A section of Sunset Boulevard between Beverly Glen Boulevard and Veteran Avenue will be closed through at least Thursday until the damage is repaired after a water main break that flooded the UCLA campus and surrounding area.
Beverly Glen Boulevard will be open to residents who show identification and proof of residence.
Here are the suggested alternate routes to get around the affected area:
- Eastbound traffic on Sunset Boulevard can head south on Veteran Avenue, then east on Wilshire Boulevard, then head north on Beverly Glen Boulevard.
- Westbound traffic on Sunset Boulevard can go south on Beverly Glen Boulevard, then west on Wilshire Boulevard, then back north on Veteran Avenue.
Commuters may also use Santa Monica Boulevard or Olympic Boulevard as an alternative to Wilshire Boulevard to travel east or west.
"We encoruage motorists to use Santa Monica Boulevard and go as far south as Olympic Boulevard," said Aram Sahakiann, special traffic operations for the transportation department.
Those attempting to access the UCLA campus should use Westwood Boulevard.
A temporary detour is in place for Metro bus riders of bus lines 233 and 761.
