Sunset Strip Beautification Update

WEEKLY CONSTRUCTION UPDATE FOR FEBRUARY 9-15, 2010

Work Hours: 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, Mondays – Fridays.

During work hours lanes will be reduced to one travel lane in the eastbound and one travel lane in the westbound direction. At the end of the day lanes will be reopened to two lanes of traffic in each direction.

SIDEWALKS, DRIVEWAYS & CURB WORK:
This week the contractor is continuing to work on replacing damaged sidewalks, driveways, and corner ramps on both the north side and the south side of the street.

ELECTRICAL WORK:
There will be some electrical work being done at the Kings Road intersection. No power interruptions are associated with this work.

ROADWAY REPAIRS:
Broken and/or damaged concrete in the roadway will be worked on this week. This involves excavating the damaged area, fixing/compacting the soil that is under the pavement and then repaving the damaged area. One lane of traffic will remain open in each direction. Roadway resumes to 2 lanes of traffic in each direction at the end

All businesses will be open during their normal business hours.

Support your local businesses during construction.

Commuters should expect delays, plan for additional time to get through the area, or chose an alternate route until the lanes return to normal operation. Additional arrow boards will be brought to the jobsite tomorrow.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during the construction and temporary lane closures.

FEBRUARY 15, 2010:
For many people Monday, February 15, 2010 is a holiday. For the construction industry it is not a recognized union holiday. The contractor has applied for an extended hours construction permit. The City approved this permit because the inspection team is also going to be working to oversee the contractor. Also this will give the contractor a chance to finish work that was pushed back due to the rains. Work hours for this Monday are 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Phone calls can still be directed to our community liaison, Alicia Molina at 310-548-9292.
