Construction Update 6/12/2019

June 12, 2019

REMINDER: Please make sure to slow down while driving in construction zones and to obey all traffic control signage and personnel.

Preparatory work for construction on Crenshaw Boulevard, beginning at Crest Road and continuing north towards the South Coast Botanic Garden, is expected to begin around the week of June 24. This initial work, including surveying and equipment staging, is expected to last approximately two weeks before pipeline installation begins. Crews are scheduled to work from Monday to Friday, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Please expect increased traffic delays during work hours and use alternate routes, such as Hawthorne Boulevard, where possible.

Pipeline installation is expected to continue for about 1 to 2 weeks on Rolling Hills Road, between Rolling Hills Road (private road) and Lariat Lane. Crews are working from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Flaggers will be stationed at both ends of the construction area to help facilitate alternating one-way traffic on Rolling Hills Road. After pipeline installation is complete, traffic control will be reduced as crews complete finishing work. While work continues, we strongly encourage you to use alternative roads where possible to avoid increased traffic delays.

Restoration and other finishing work, including the patching and grouting of installed pipeline, is ongoing along the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail, between Rolling Hills Road and the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield. This work is occurring from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The trail remains closed to the public and we encourage riders to avoid the area due to construction-related noise that may startle a horse.

Finishing work from Dapplegray Elementary School’s parking lot to the Little League ballfield continues from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. As a reminder, the Dapplegray Elementary School access road will remain closed to the public from Monday to Friday until 3:30 p.m. 

Preparatory work, such as clearing and grubbing, continues in the South Coast Botanic Garden property and Botanic Garden Trail, between Crenshaw Boulevard and Rolling Hills Road. Crews are working from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. The Botanic Garden trail, from Blossom’s Trail to Rolling Hills Road, will remain closed for the safety of crews and equestrians.

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

Please note that all construction dates outlined in the timeline are estimates, rather than exact deadlines, and the length of work may change based on several factors, like inclement weather and unknowable field circumstances.
