UPDATE: Change to Traffic Control on Crenshaw Boulevard

To date, traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard has been set up and taken down at the start and end of each workday. Beginning as early as Wednesday, December 4, traffic control will remain in place 24/7 on the portion of Crenshaw Boulevard between Indian Peak Road to south of Chadwick Lane to allow crews to work more efficiently. We expect this change to result in significant time savings for construction on Crenshaw Boulevard.

There will be two phases of 24/7 traffic control on Crenshaw Boulevard –

Phase 1 

  • Boundaries: Indian Peak Road to south of Chadwick Lane
  • Traffic control: Single lane of northbound and southbound traffic. Traffic control in place at all times. Permanent (glued down) construction delineators and dual yellow striping will be on the northbound lanes of Crenshaw Boulevard to indicate the new flow of traffic
  • Work hours: Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with intermittent Saturday work
  • Completion: Approximately the end of December 2019

 

After Phase 1 is completed, traffic control between Indian Peak and Silver Spur roads will be taken down and all lanes of traffic will re-open.

Phase 2 

  • Boundaries: Silver Spur Road to south of Chadwick Lane
  • Traffic control: Single lane of northbound and southbound traffic. Traffic control in place at all times. Permanent (glued down) construction delineators and dual yellow striping will be on the southbound lanes of Crenshaw Boulevard to indicate the new flow of traffic
  • Work hours: Monday to Friday, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with intermittent Saturday work
  • Completion: Early 2020

 

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused by ongoing construction. We’re working hard to improve construction-related traffic on Crenshaw and Hawthorne boulevards as quickly and effectively as possible, including the following measures:

  • There are flaggers stationed at intersections impacted by our work to facilitate traffic movement. Once the traffic control changes described above are implemented, the intersections of Indian Peak and Silver Spur roads (the only intersections impacted during that time) will have flaggers stationed to flag traffic during the morning, and evening peak hours, and anytime they observe back-ups.
  • As of Friday, November 22, the City of Rancho Palos Verdes has adjusted the timing of signal lights at the intersections of Hawthorne Boulevard and Indian Peak Road as well as Hawthorne Boulevard and Highridge Road to optimize traffic flow through these areas. We will also be working with the City of Rolling Hills Estates to make necessary adjustments to the traffic signal light at Hawthorne Boulevard and Silver Spur Road.
  • As construction continues, we’re working closely with the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, the City of Rolling Hills Estates, and our traffic engineer consultant to identify other solutions to help improve traffic flow on Crenshaw and Hawthorne boulevards.

 

As a reminder, please slow down when driving in construction work zones and obey all traffic control personnel and signage for the safety of residents and crews. Please note that all timing is estimated and may change based on unforeseeable field circumstances.

Thank you for your continued patience!
