Los Feliz Boulevard Undergoing Construction
Posted by Kyle Maloney on Apr 2, 2013 - 3:56:54 PM

LOS FELIZ—According to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Los Feliz Boulevard will be blocked between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. weekdays, with a possibility of some Saturdays due to a new construction project to replace subterranean power lines in the area.

Work on the power line replacement began Tuesday, April 2, and is scheduled to last until early May.

In a letter regarding the “unavoidable traffic impacts” that will result from this project, Councilman Tom LaBonge, a representative of the area, explained that the city cannot take these impacts lightly.

During construction hours, one westbound lane will remain open for through traffic on Los Feliz Boulevard at the Hillhurst Avenue cross street. Customarily, two lanes are available for through traffic, with a third lane open for vehicles making right turns.

No left turns will be allowed with the exception of westbound Los Feliz Boulevard onto southbound Hillhurst Avenue. All southbound Hillhurst traffic coming from Griffith Park will be required to turn right onto westbound Los Feliz.

Traffic control officers will be placed at major intersections in order to ease the congestion.

According to city officials, the project will be completed in three separate phases with the second phase taking place in June. This phase will require digging up five of the seven lanes on Los Feliz Boulevard just west of Vermont Avenue, leaving only one lane eastbound and one lane westbound for traffic.

“This is an improvement that will provide a much-needed upgrade to our power infrastructure,” Labonge wrote in his letter. “This effort will add capacity and relieve existing circuits.”

Along with the construction on Coldwater Canyon Avenue—scheduled to last until the end of this month—the Los Feliz Boulevard project is expected to impede the regular flow of traffic in the area. According to Councilman LaBonge, the project is necessary and commuters are urged to take alternate routes.

He said, “I personally, as a councilman, will accept all the congestion I could get as long as I get a new infrastructure.”
