All 36,300 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed and crews are now conducting finishing work to prepare for the new pipeline to be tied into the existing water system. This is a significant project milestone and means the end of the project (or pipeline, in this case) is in sight!
Below is an overview of completed and ongoing project work –
- As of Monday, April 13, the 24/7 traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard between Silver Spur Road and Chadwick Lane has been removed and ALL lanes are now open! There will continue to be smaller, periodic closures along Crenshaw Boulevard, between Crest Road and the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church, until mid-2020 as crews continue finishing work for the new drinking water pipeline and pump station. These closures are needed to give crews access to the manways to conduct activities like welding and grouting.
- Starting as early as Friday, April 17, crews will conduct work in the intersection of Silver Spur Road and Crenshaw Boulevard for approximately two days. Work will take place between Monday and Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. While the left turn lane will be closed, vehicles can still make left turns from Crenshaw Boulevard onto Silver Spur Road using the adjacent northbound lane. All lanes will re-open at the end of each workday.
- Nightwork continues on Crenshaw Boulevard, from the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church to south of Chadwick Lane, including the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Palos Verdes Drive North. Crews are working from Monday to Saturday, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., and are expected to continue until approximately late April. As a reminder, at least one lane of traffic will be open in each direction during work hours.
- Construction is ongoing at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Crews are working from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Palos Verdes Drive North
- Over the next four to six weeks, you may see crews conducting periodic finishing work along Palos Verdes Drive North, between Dapplegray Elementary School and Montecillo Drive. Intermittent work will take place between Monday and Friday, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. There are no anticipated lane closures, but there may be temporary traffic control to route vehicles around work areas.
Work continues on Montecillo Drive from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. and is expected to continue until approximately May. During work hours, there will be a temporary closure of the northbound lane and traffic will be diverted to the southbound lane. There will always be at least one lane of traffic open in each direction. At the end of each workday, traffic control will be taken down and the area will be plated. Residents will have access to Montecillo Drive at all times.
South Coast Botanic Garden & Bridle Trails
- Finishing work, including grouting and welding, continues in the South Coast Botanic Garden property and Botanic Garden Trail, between Crenshaw Boulevard and Rolling Hills Road from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. For the safety of residents and crews, the Botanic Garden Trail, from the end of Lariat Lane to Rolling Hills Road, will remain closed until work is complete.
- Crews are conducting periodic finishing work on Rolling Hills Road (private road) from Monday to Saturday, between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Residents will continue to have access to the private road as work continues unless otherwise notified.
- Crews will also conduct intermittent finishing work on Rolling Hills Road from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. There are no anticipated lane closures, but there may be temporary traffic control to route vehicles around work areas.
