Cold Water Canyon Closing For Five Weeks
Posted by Kyle Maloney on Mar 21, 2013 - 2:25:54 PM

HOLLYWOOD—Beginning Saturday, March 23, Cold Water Canyon Avenue will be shut down during daylight hours between Ventura Boulevard and Mulholland Drive.

Work to replace a Department of Water and Power trunk line is scheduled to last until April 25, and traffic is expected to increase, especially on major streets such as Laurel Canyon and Beverly Glenn Boulevards. Officials are encouraging commuters to use the freeways.

Coldwater Canyon Avenue closed March 23 through April 25.

At a news conference on Wednesday morning, Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Krekorian said, “I know how difficult it will be to drive through the area during this time, which is why I would urge all of us to find alternate routes during construction.”

On a daily average, 30,000 vehicles use Cold Water Canyon. While under construction, only one lane in each direction will be open starting at 7 p.m. on weekdays and 6 p.m. on Saturdays. There will be no construction on Sundays.

In 2009, the 100-year-old trunk line ruptured, costing about $8 million in legal claims against the city. Workers will be focusing the majority of their efforts between Dickens Street and Hacienda Drive, replacing large sections of the 60-inch steel pipeline.

Work hours are scheduled Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays, 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Access permits will be issued to residents and people who attend local schools.

Alternate routes for travelers are Cahuenga Boulevard/Highland Avenue, Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Beverly Glen Boulevard, Sepulveda Boulevard, and the 405 and 101 freeways.
