Construction Update: January 2020

More than 30,400 feet of new drinking water pipeline have been installed to date, which will help ensure all Peninsula residents continue to have safe, reliable water service for everyday and emergency needs.

Here’s an overview of ongoing project work –

Crenshaw Boulevard

  • Daytime construction continues on Crenshaw Boulevard between Silver Spur Road and south of Chadwick Lane. Starting as early as Saturday, January 18, crews will transition to the second phase of 24/7 traffic control and will move the construction delineators and dual yellow striping from the northbound lanes of Crenshaw Boulevard to the southbound lanes, with one lane open in each direction at all times. Traffic control will remain in place until approximately the end of February and work will continue from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., with periodic Saturday work. For graphics depicting the second phase of traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard, please see below or visit our Crenshaw Construction Traffic & Info page here. Please expect delays and use alternate routes, where possible.
    • Please note, the traffic lights in the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Silver Spur Road have been returned to normal, timed cycles. Crews will return to the intersection in the upcoming months to complete finishing work for the installed pipeline.
  • Nightwork has restarted on Crenshaw Boulevard, beginning at the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church and continuing down to south of Chadwick Lane, including the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Palos Verdes Drive North. Work is taking place from Monday to Friday, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m., and is expected to continue until approximately mid-March. During work hours, there will always be at least one lane of traffic open in each direction.
    • The construction laydown yard adjacent to the Landfill Loop Trail will be in use during nighttime work hours (Monday to Friday, 8 p.m.-6 a.m.) for approximately 8-10 weeks to facilitate ongoing construction in the intersection and to remove excess dirt from the laydown yard.
  • Construction continues at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Work is taking place from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Traffic control is in place 24/7, with one lane of northbound and southbound traffic open at all times.


South Coast Botanic Garden & Bridle Trails

  • Work continues in the South Coast Botanic Garden Property, between Crenshaw Boulevard and the end of Lariat Lane. Crews are welding and grouting joints for the installed pipeline from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.
  • Pipeline installation is ongoing in the Botanic Garden Trail, between the end of Lariat Lane and Rolling Hills Road. Work is taking place 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 intermittent finishing work along the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail. There will be a temporary, partial closure of the trail between Rolling Hills Road and the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield until approximately the end of January. Work is taking place from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Residents and horse owners that live along the trail will have access in and out of the trail from Rolling Hills Road. Crews will periodically use the Dapplegray Elementary School access road to access the trail, working around the school’s pick-up and drop-off times.
