Construction Update: 5/22/19

May 22, 2019

Project work is in its eleventh month and more than 19,700 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed. As a reminder, please obey all posted road and trail closure signage and traffic control personnel while navigating construction zones.

Crews are currently installing new drinking water pipelines on Rolling Hills Road, between Rolling Hills Road (private road) and Lariat Lane. This work is taking place from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and is expected to last approximately one month. On Thursday, May 23, this work may continue as late as 10 p.m., if needed. These extended work hours will allow crews to temporarily shut off water to the South Coast Botanic Garden, complete an important section of work, and turn the water back on before the end of the day. No residents, homes, or other businesses will be affected by the water shutoff. As a reminder, we strongly encourage you to avoid Rolling Hills Road, where possible, until all work is complete to avoid increased traffic.

Crews have begun welding the new water pipelines along the Palomino Rancho Bridle Trail, between Rolling Hills Road and the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield. This work is taking place from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. A reminder that the trail remains closed to the public during construction and we encourage riders to avoid the area due to construction-related noise that could startle a horse.

Work is ongoing in the South Coast Botanic Garden property, between Crenshaw Boulevard and the end of Lariat Lane. This work is taking place from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Botanic Garden trail, from Blossom’s Trail to Rolling Hills Road, will remain closed during work for the safety of equestrians and crews.

Cleaning and grouting of the new pipeline continues from Dapplegray Elementary School’s parking lot to the Little League ballfield from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Dapplegray Elementary School access road will remain closed to the public from Monday to Friday until 3:30 p.m. 

Work is ongoing at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Construction continues from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Traffic control will be in place on Crenshaw Boulevard during work hours and at least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction at all times.
