The Southern California Gas Co. will conduct lane closures on Del Amo Boulevard between Palo Verde Avenue and Los Coyotes Boulevard near the 605 Freeway, starting on Monday, March 25. The project will continue through late July, while the company builds new gas pipelines in the area.
Starting March 25 for about 4 weeks of the initial work, one eastbound lane will be closed. Starting about April 15 or so, one westbound lane will also be closed for the duration of the project.
Work hours will generally be 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., but a portion of work will also be required on nights and weekends. The lane closures will allow the work to be completed with maximum safety for drivers and workers.
Drivers may experience slow traffic on Del Amo during the full three to four months of work and may want to consider alternate routes. Natural gas service should continue without interruption.
The on- and off-ramps of the 605 at Del Amo are planned to remain open at all times. Del Amo and all cross streets are also expected to remain open at all times, though individual lanes will be closed on Del Amo. There will be certain periods that only right turns will be permitted from some side streets or driveways. Should there be other changes, the city will provide advance notification via another Lakewood Connect traffic alert email and on the city’s website.
Local businesses will remain open during the project. The construction work is part of the Gas Company’s efforts to enhance pipeline safety.
