If you’ve noticed some new signs going up in your neighborhood, make sure to take a closer look.

Public Works crews are putting up new “No Parking During Street Sweeping” signs as part of the City’s Optimized Street Sweeping Program. The new work is part of Phase 3, which includes 6,000 signs.

Areas north of 190th Street and some areas in South Torrance are in the process of having signs installed. Crews plan to continue this work throughout the week on the south side of Redondo Beach Boulevard between Ainsworth Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.

The next area, between Crenshaw and Van Ness Avenue, will be receiving notices one week in advance. There is a three-week grace period following the installations before enforcement begins.

The program was implemented to make sure zero trash, oils and debris enter the City’s stormdrain system in order for Torrance to meet the regulations by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board.

Approximately, 10,000 signs in total will be installed citywide. The project will be ongoing through spring.
