With all 36,300 feet of pipeline installed, crews continue to conduct finishing work to prepare for the new pipeline to be tied into the existing water system (what are known as “tie-ins”). The end of the project is in sight and we sincerely appreciate your patience as work progresses.
Below is an overview of ongoing and upcoming project work –
- As a reminder, there will continue to be smaller, periodic daytime 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.
- 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.
South Coast Botanic Garden & Bridle Trails
- The Botanic Garden Trail, from Blossom’s Trail to Moccasin Trail, including the Crenshaw Boulevard tunnel, is now open! The portion of the Botanic Garden Trail from Blossom’s Trail to Rolling Hills Road is expected to reopen within the next week or so.
- This week, crews will conduct work near the Rolling Hills Little League ballfield with heavy machinery that may cause loud noises. The adjacent bridle trails will remain open, but we recommend avoiding the area due to noise that could startle a horse.
Rolling Hills Road
- This week, crews will conduct finishing work on Rolling Hills Road (private road) between 7 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. for approximately two days. Residents will continue to have access to the private road and the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail as work takes place unless otherwise notified.
Intermittent finishing work continues 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.
- Crews are preparing to conduct two tie-ins on Montecillo Drive – one near the Jack Kramer Club and one near Palos Verdes Drive North. Work will take place from Monday to Saturday, between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. until approximately the end of May. There is a temporary, periodic closure of the northbound lane with traffic diverted to the southbound lane, with at least one lane of traffic open in each direction at all times. At the end of each workday, traffic control will be taken down and the area will be plated for safety and return to normal. Residents will always have access to Montecillo Drive.
