Construction Update: 3/6/19

March 6, 2019

Project work is now in its ninth month and more than 17,760 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed.

Due to the inclement weather this week, paving of Palos Verdes Drive North, between Dapplegray Elementary School and Palos Verdes Drive East, and of Montecillo Drive, from Palos Verdes Drive North to Encanto Drive, is now scheduled to take place next Thursday, March 14, and Friday, March 15. There will still be a two-day eastbound lane closure of Palos Verdes Drive North, from Rolling Hills Road to Palos Verdes Drive East, from approximately 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a clearly marked detour for eastbound traffic beginning at Rolling Hills Road as well as Crenshaw Boulevard and the westbound lane of Palos Verdes Drive North will remain open at all times.

Nightwork continues on Palos Verdes Drive North, from Dapplegray Elementary School to Palos Verdes Drive East, to conduct cleaning and grouting of the pipeline in this area. Work is expected to occur from Monday to Friday, between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. At least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction at all times.

Crews will be conducting minor finishing work, including the cleaning and grouting of pipes, during the day 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. This work will take place 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 both directions at all times.

Restoration work for landscape and irrigation systems 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, from Monday to Friday, between 7:30 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. The parking lot will be open to the public after work hours.

In order to continue preparatory work in the Botanic Garden Trail, near Lariat Lane, crews are working to resolve a conflict with an unmarked utility line. The trail will remain closed to pedestrians and riders during this time as pipes will also be staged in the trail to facilitate nearby work. Riders are encouraged to avoid the work area due to construction-related noise that could spook a horse.

The Dapplegray Elementary School access road and Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail, between the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield and Rolling Hills Road, remains closed to the public. Parents will still be able to enter and exit the access road that leads to the ballfield for practices during the week starting at 3:30 p.m. Please visit our equestrian page for a map of current trail closures and detours.

Work continues at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Crews have been preparing for construction, which includes clearing the area and drilling for retaining walls, among other preparatory work. As part of this work, traffic control will be implemented during work hours, from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., to allow large vehicles to enter and exit safely onto Crenshaw Boulevard. At least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction at all times.

Please refer to the timeline on our Map & Timeline page for the most updated information. Please note that the construction dates outlined in the timeline are estimates, rather than exact deadlines, and the duration of nightwork may change based on a number of factors like inclement weather or unknowable field circumstances.
