As part of the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project, Metro is completely rebuilding the curb, gutter and sidewalk in your area. Once complete, the new streetscape will include new median landscaping, sidewalk trees, street lights, traffic signals and a repaved roadway.
Walsh-Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC) will be installing a storm drain on the northeast corner of Crenshaw Bl and Slauson Av. The installation will require saw cutting, potholing and the installation of the new storm drain and manhole.
The activities will be implemented in two phases. During the first phase one westbound lane will be reduced on Slauson Av, east of Crenshaw Bl. This phase will also require a temporary northbound lane closure of the lane closest to the frontage road along with a closure of a segment of the frontage road, closest to the work area.
During the second phase, westbound Slauson Av will be reduced to one lane of travel, east of Crenshaw Bl. Left turns will be restricted for westbound Slauson Av traffic onto Crenshaw Bl. This phase will also require a temporary northbound lane closure of the lane closest to the frontage road along with a closure of a segment of the frontage road, closest to the work area.
Construction will last approximately one month.
