Construction Update: 2/14/19

February 14, 2019

This week, crews continue to clean and grout pipes, among other finishing work needed, on Palos Verdes Drive North, from Palos Verdes Drive East to Montecillo Drive, and on Montecillo Drive, from Palos Verdes Drive North to Encanto Drive. Work is expected to occur from Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. or 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. There will be at least one lane of traffic open in each direction at all times.

Landscape and irrigation system restoration continues on Montecillo Drive, between Palos Verdes Drive North and Encanto Drive. We are working closely with the Montecillo Homeowners’ Association to coordinate all necessary details.

Nightwork continues in the parking lot of the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church, along the Botanic Garden property near Crenshaw Boulevard. Construction is ongoing from Monday to Friday, between 7:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. Portions of the pipeline are currently being staged on the Botanic Garden Trail to help facilitate this work. The parking lot will be open to the public after work hours.

After work is completed in the parking lot, crews will be conducting nightwork on a small portion of Crenshaw Boulevard, near the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church. Work will take place Monday to Friday, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. There will be at least one lane open in both directions at all times.

Utility line relocation is ongoing in the Botanic Garden Trail, near Lariat Lane, from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Crews are currently working to relocate an existing methane gas line before pipeline installation can begin. 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.

A reminder that the Dapplegray Elementary School access road and Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail, between the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield and Rolling Hills Road, remain closed to the public during this time. During the 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 detours, visit our equestrian page.

Preparatory work continues at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, which is expected to be complete by late 2019. Crews have been clearing the area and facilitating deliveries of materials to the site, among other preparatory work, to allow for construction. Traffic control will be implemented periodically and on an as-needed basis to allow for large vehicles or assist the safe entry and exit of crews from 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.
