Roadwork projects taking place on the south side of the City may cause some delays for drivers.

The Pacific Coast Highway southbound curb lane between Robert Road and Janet Lane was closed today, and will be for the rest of the week. Public Works crews are making headway on the PCH fencing and guard rail project. They will construct safety improvements on the south side of PCH, along the southern median between Calle Mayor and Janet Lane. They will remove dirt in the raised island to make room for fencing, guard rail and vegetation. This project has been split into two phases. After completion of phase 1, the City will look to make landscape and irrigation improvements as part of Phase II. Lane closures will last for the next two weeks.

The Public Works Department is also reminding drivers about other road improvement projects.

Crews have begun curb, gutter, sidewalk and pavement repairs on Crenshaw Boulevard. As part of what is being called the Crenshaw Rehabilitation project, work will be done between Sepulveda Boulevard and Skypark Drive, as well as south of Pacific Coast Highway to the City boundary. Today and through the week, drivers will face single lane closures. They are specifically working on concrete removals south of PCH on the northbound side.

Public Works Engineer Steve Finton says that he recommends people to take Western Avenue or Hawthorne Boulevard as alternate routes. And looking ahead, Finton says crews will take a long break between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. The project is expected to last through Spring 2017.
