The City of West Hollywood is continuing its installation of four pedestrian crosswalks with traffic lights on Santa Monica Boulevard. This week the contractor has continued work on the new traffic signals at all locations, putting in place the signal pole foundations and underground conduit.
This coming week, parking meters in the immediate work area may be labeled with temporary “no parking” signs posted 24 hours in advance. Also, the crosswalk at Santa Monica Boulevard and Palm Avenue will remain closed until the new curb ramps are constructed and striping installed.
No work will take place on Monday in observance of Labor Day. Tuesday through Friday, drivers and pedestrians again can expect daily lane closures in the immediate work areas between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Work during the rest of next week includes:
— Tuesday: Work will continue on underground conduits at Westmount Drive.
— Wednesday: Work will continue on underground conduits at Palm Avenue and West Knoll Drive.
— Thursday: Work will continue on underground conduits at Hancock Avenue.
— Friday: Work will continue on underground conduits at Hancock Avenue.
Construction started on July 10, and it is anticipated to be finished in mid-October.
Questions or concerns about the crosswalk project should be directed to Hany Demitri of WeHo’s Public Works Department at (323) 848-6507.
