Construction is in full swing on the 8.5-mile Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project. Here’s the latest notice sent out from the project regarding the closure and reconfiguration of a street adjacent to the future light-rail line:
Walsh/Shea Corridor Constructors (WSCC) will close Victoria Avenue to traffic between 67th Street and 71st Street beginning Friday, March 18, for the upcoming “cut & cover” operation necessary to support construction for the Crenshaw/LAX Transit Project.
Upon completion of the work, Victoria Ave. north of the right-of-way will become a cul-de-sac and south of the railroad tracks will lead to a new city street that runs parallel to the new Crenshaw/LAX light-rail line.
Work has been scheduled to begin on Friday, March 18, 2016 at 9 a.m. Local and emergency responder access will be maintained up to the closure boundaries. Pedestrian traffic on Victoria Avenue will be detoured at 67th Street and 71th Street.
