The City of West Hollywood is continuing its installation of four pedestrian crosswalks with traffic lights on Santa Monica Boulevard. The city expects to have the project, which began July 10, completed by the middle of next month.
This past week, the contractor continued working on the new traffic signals at all locations by placing two signal pole foundations, completing the underground conduit and replacing sidewalk removed for the traffic signal conduit installation.
Next week, the contractor will continue to have daily lane closures in the immediate work areas between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Here’s the day-by-day schedule for this coming week’s work:
— Monday: The contractor will begin installing the traffic signal pole and gear at Westmount Drive and place the controller foundation.
— Tuesday: The contractor will complete the traffic signal pole and gear installation at Westmount Drive.
— Wednesday: The contractor will install the traffic signal poles and gear at West Knoll Drive.
— Thursday: The contractor will install the traffic signal poles and gear at Palm Avenue.
— Friday: The contractor will complete wire installation at Palm Avenue.
To accommodate the construction, parking meters in the immediate work area may be tagged with temporary “No Parking” signs that will be posted 24 hours in advance. The crosswalk at Santa Monica Boulevard and Palm Avenue will remain closed while the new curb ramps are constructed.
Anyone with questions and concerns should call Eric Eljenholm at (949) 637-6126 or Hany Demitri of the City of West Hollywood’s Public Works Department at (323) 848- 6507.
