Storm Drain Installation at 48th St and Crenshaw Bl


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 continue installing a storm drain line on the northwest corner of 48th St and Crenshaw Bl. The installation will require saw cutting and excavation and will connect to existing utilities. This will require temporary full westbound closure for traffic on 48th St between Crenshaw Bl and Victoria Av, while the work is taking place. Construction will last one month.

Upon completion of this work, the next phase of work will include curb and gutter, ADA ramps, and driveway and sidewalk construction.
