Construction Update: 1/15/19

January 15, 2019

Work for the project continues this week, and more than 17,200 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed to date.

This Friday, crews expect to conduct pavement testing from Montecillo Drive (at Encanto Drive) to Palos Verdes Drive North (at Dapplegray Elementary School). Testing will occur during the stated work hours (see the latest project timeline for reference), and traffic control measures will be in place throughout the duration of testing. This testing is a necessary part of preparing for final paving along Montecillo Drive and Palos Verdes Drive North, which will allow for a smoother, more seamless drive. Landscape restoration also continues on Montecillo Drive and we are continuing to work closely with the Montecillo Homeowners’ Association to coordinate all necessary details.

Work is ongoing near the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield and in the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail, between the ballfield and Rolling Hills Road. A reminder that the Dapplegray Elementary School access road and Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail remain closed to the public during this time. Starting this week, parents will be able to use the access road leading to the ballfield for practices starting at 3:30 p.m. For a map of ongoing trail closures and route alternatives, visit our equestrian page.

Preparatory work, including pipeline delivery, continues in the Botanic Garden Trail, between Rolling Hills Road and Crenshaw Boulevard, from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Botanic Garden Trail will remain closed to pedestrians and riders until approximately spring 2019. Riders are encouraged to avoid the work area due to construction-related noise that may spook a horse.

Pipeline installation is underway as part of nightwork in the parking lot of the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church, along the Botanic Garden property near Crenshaw Boulevard. Work will continue from Monday to Friday, between 7:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. Pipeline is currently being staged on the Botanic Garden Trail as part of this work. The parking lot will be accessible after work hours.

Crews are conducting preparatory work for the new pump station on Crenshaw Boulevard, which is expected to be complete by late 2019. Construction preparation will include crews clearing the area as well as deliveries of materials to the pump station site.

Please note that the construction dates provided are estimates, not exact deadlines, and the actual duration of night work may change based on a number of factors, including weather and unknowable field circumstances.
