Construction Update: 6/27/19

June 27, 2019

REMINDER: During construction, the Sheriff’s Department is expected to increase their presence on Crenshaw Boulevard, so we advise travelers to obey all traffic laws and drive carefully through construction zones. Thank you!

Preparatory work, including potholing and equipment staging, on Crenshaw Boulevard has begun. Starting at Crest Road, crews will work towards the new pump station site, north of Silver Spur Road. Work will take place from Monday to Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. This initial work is expected to last approximately two weeks before pipeline installation starts the week of July 8. During work hours, please anticipate increased traffic delays and use alternate routes, such as Hawthorne Boulevard, where possible.

Patching and grouting of the newly installed pipeline is ongoing along the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail, between Rolling Hills Road and the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield. This work continues 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 could startle your horse.

Patching and grouting work is ongoing on Rolling Hills Road, between Rolling Hills Road (private road) and Lariat Lane. Crews will be working from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. We encourage you to use alternative roads where possible to avoid increased traffic delays.

Work continues in the Botanic Garden Trail and South Coast Botanic Garden property in preparation for pipeline installation. Crews will be working west towards the Botanic Garden Trail and Botanic Garden property, between the end of Lariat Lane and Crenshaw Boulevard. Crews are scheduled to work from Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Work continues at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard will be in place during work hours, Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. At least one lane of traffic will be open in both directions at all times.
