Iconic Wilshire Boulevard: Its Past, Present, and Transit Future

Join Metro as we take you along a key section of the world-famous Wilshire Corridor, one of the most densely populated urban thoroughfares in the United States. The WalkShop will include visits to two major active subway station construction sites at Wilshire/La Brea and Wilshire/Fairfax for the Purple Line Extension Project. Participants will also visit the LA Brea Tar Pits, where project paleontologist Ashley Leger will show models of fossils unearthed during subway station construction. Tour guides will point out historical points of interest from local buildings and communities and show other improvement projects for the “Miracle Mile,” including rehabilitation projects at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Peterson Automotive Museum, among many others.
