The reconstruction and widening for Sepulveda Boulevard have been extended to next Thursday, Dec. 6 due to the poor weather conditions, according to Metro spokesman Dave Sotero.
The construction reduced Sepulveda Boulevard to one lane in each direction between Montana Avenue and Church Lane this week.
Here's what to know:
When: 24 hours a day, seven days a week lane reduction that started at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov, 26 has been extended to Thursday, Dec. 6. Anticipated work hours are from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. This operation is subject to change and is weather permitting.
What to expect:
- Sepulveda Boulevard will be reduced to one lane in each direction from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. and fully closed from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. to support roadway work and other critical activities.
- This operation is necessary in order to eliminate the grade difference between the new roadway and the existing Sepulveda Boulevard grade.
- Sepulveda Boulevard will be reconfigured to its final location at the end of this operation and Homedale Avenue will reopen at the completion of the roadway work.
- The public is asked to plan ahead and expect delays during the implementation of the lane reduction.
- Some vibration is anticipated during the use of the compaction rollers. Dump trucks and excavation equipment will be used.
- Traffic Control Officers will be utilized at key intersections during peak hours, including Sunset Boulevard and Barrington Avenue, to mitigate traffic impacts associated with the lane reduction.
