Construction crews Monday night will start building a bridge at Bundy Drive and Exposition Boulevard in West Los Angeles.  

During the day all lanes on Bundy will be open.

But at 9 p.m. - on the part of Bundy just south of Olympic Blvd. - crews will shut down the center lane and shoulders.
They’re putting up timber, steel, concrete barriers and scaffolding. The work continues overnight Sunday through Thursday, for the next two weeks.

Though the intersection of Bundy and Exposition won’t be completely shut down, drivers will not be able to make left turns in the area during the bridge project.
Bundy is a major artery from Brentwood and West Los Angeles to the I-10 freeway interchange.

Work on the Bundy bridge is part of the construction phase of the Metro Expo Line extension to Santa Monica.  

And this won’t be the last bridge project.
Bridges are planned for nearly every major cross street on the Expo Line extension between Culver City and Santa Monica.
