During this half-day closure, construction crews will be installing new traffic control striping and delineation in preparation for a new work zone extending north of Ventura Boulevard to Moorpark Street.
Once the new work zone is in place on Saturday, Feb. 1, motorists will have access to one traffic lane going northbound and one lane southbound on Coldwater Canyon Boulevard, according to LADWP.
Moorpark Street will be reduced to one traffic lane in both
directions going east and west. Access provisions will be made for
local residents, delivery and service vehicles within the affected
area. These temporary one-lane closures will be in place through June 2014.
All work south of Ventura Boulevard has been completed and will not be impacted by future closures.
The city trunk line South unit 5 project consists of a 6,950-foot (1.3 miles), 60-inch diameter steel pipe along Coldwater Canyon Boulevard and Moorpark Street in Studio City. It is one of several phases of pipe installation designed to replace an aging element in the LADWP water distribution system. The new welded steel pipeline will improve the reliability and flexibility of the water system and is expected to last for a century.
Construction started on June 1, 2011 on Coldwater Canyon
Avenue between Van Noord Avenue and Dickens Street and the project is
now at 49 percent completion, reports LADWP.
The tentative construction completion date
is January 2016.
