DWP Upgrading Water Infrastructure on Eagle Rock Blvd
Beginning April 23rd, 2012, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (DWP) will be upgrading its infrastructure on Eagle Rock Blvd, between York Boulevard and Avenue 43. They will replace the existing 20-inch water valve with a new 20-inch valve, which will improve the flow capacity in the area.
The project will consist of three phases: (1) Setting up traffic control signs, restriping the traffic lanes, install barricades and K-rails. (2) Excavate, install new 20-inch valve, backfill and pave street. (3) Pick up traffic signs, barricades, K-rails, and restriping the street to original form.
Construction Hours will be Monday through Friday, between 7:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Eagle Rock Boulevard between York Boulevard and Avenue 43. The project is estimated to take approximately eight weeks to complete. However, adverse weather conditions or unforeseen problems in the field may impact the completion date or work schedule. “No Parking” signs will be posted and enforced. DWP will try to minimize the project’s impact and accommodate specific requests when possible.
For safety reasons, please ask to see a valid identification badge if a DWP employee comes to your door. Access to the construction area will be restricted, and children must be kept away from the construction area.
