Golden State Water Company is installing a new 8-inch ductile iron water main, fire hydrants, and services on Jackson Avenue from Farragut Drive to Ballona Creek and on Lindblade Avenue from Sepulveda Boulevard to Coombs Avenue.
Work – which includes connecting the new pipe to all the existing pipelines just outside of the intersections – began on Jackson Avenue on Jan. 29 and is slated to end on Feb. 28.
However, the construction is taking place in two separate places. Construction also began on Jan. 28 at Lindblade Avenue. However the work that will continue from Lindblade at Sepulevade Boulevard to Coombs Avenue is not expected to be finished until March 25.
Construction hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and crews with backhoes, dump trucks, crew trucks and hand tools will be digging along the new pipeline alignment.
According to a release from the City of Culver City, the services will generally be installed using an air compressor and a pneumatic boring tool.
The streets will remain open to traffic during the construction period but traffic and parking may be restricted, and access to driveways may be limited for short periods of time.
While construction crews will make every effort to keep dust to a minimum, residents should expect higher noise levels.
All questions and concerns about the project should be directed to the Golden State Water Company Customer Service Center at (800) 999-4033.
