Repaving and grinding work continues through Saturday, March 20 at Lakewood-Del Amo intersection

The grinding and re-paving work at the intersection of Lakewood and Del Amo boulevards will continue through Saturday, March 20, potentially into the evening.

As a result, traffic at the intersection of Del Amo and Lakewood boulevards will be down to one lane in all directions. Start and stop times will depend on the weather conditions, as there are temperature requirements for the asphalt concrete.

If you can, please plan an alternate route during daytime hours through Saturday as traffic is expected to be very heavy.

Crews will be working throughout the day and will sometimes need to hold all traffic for a period of time while workers grind and pave the intersection.

The lanes will re-open Thursday and Friday evenings after 5:30 p.m. when crews have finished for the day. Work will continue Saturday until it has been completed.

The City of Lakewood secured full funding from L.A. Metro for this major project to widen the roadway and construct dual left-turn lanes in all four directions of the intersection at Del Amo and Lakewood boulevards. The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of April, is designed to ease the flow of traffic through this very busy intersection.
