Construction Update

The Ronald Reagan/UCLA Medical Center is now open for business. Likewise, C. E. Young Drive is now re-open from Westwood Plaza, west to Gayley Avenue, where a traffic light and crosswalk have been installed. Construction continues on the replacement UC Police Department at the corner of Westwood Plaza and C. E. Young Drive. There is no sidewalk for pedestrians on the west side of Westwood Plaza from just north of the Ronald Reagan UCLA Hospital and the Strathmore Building. Rieber Residence Hall is closed for upgrades and repairs.

This project is scheduled to be completed in about 18 months. There is very little, if any, impact, to access to Rieber Vista or Rieber Terrace. A new major construction site is that of the Life Sciences Replacement Building near Manning Drive and C. E.Young Drive what once was Hershey Hall. The sidewalk on the east side of C. E Young Drive from Manning Drive to the Botany Building is closed. A traffic light is being installed on C. E. Young Drive at the crosswalk between the School of Public Health and Parking Structure 9.

Work on the Spieker Aquatics Center is underway. This new, state-of-the-art swimming and diving center is located near the Sunset Canyon Recreation Center. A number of tennis courts near Sunset Village were removed for this project. The De Neve east sidewalk from the Sunset Rec turnaround to just before the entrance to the Sunset Village Parking Structure is closed. This project may take up to a year to complete.
