Traffic Advisory: Lane Reduction on 190th Street in Torrance September 15-17

Project is part of a multi-billion-dollar safety enhancement program

Sep 14, 2017

WHAT:  On September 15-17, SoCalGas will be conducting pipeline safety testing work on 190th Street in Torrance. Westbound and eastbound traffic on 190th Street between Crenshaw Boulevard and Crenshaw Place will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Eastbound traffic on 190th Street will not be able to make a left turn onto Crenshaw Place, and westbound traffic will not be able to make a right onto Crenshaw Place.

Traffic may be slower than usual. Digital message boards, safety cones and traffic control officers will be on-site directing traffic. SoCalGas advises motorists to drive carefully past the work site and observe all traffic control signs.

No interruption to natural gas service is anticipated.

Customers may smell the odor of natural gas. Although this is normal when crews are working, SoCalGas encourages anyone who has concerns about the smell of gas to call us from a safe location at 1-800-427-2200. SoCalGas is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

WHERE: LANE REDUCTION: 190th Street, between Crenshaw Boulevard and Crenshaw Place, Torrance, CA, as shown in this link.

WHEN: 5 p.m., Friday, Sept. 15 through 5 a.m., Sunday, Sept. 17, 2017

NOTE: This effort is part of SoCalGas’ Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan (PSEP), a multi-billion-dollar program that tests and updates the natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Southern California. SoCalGas’ five-year capital plan includes $6 billion in infrastructure investments, including approximately $1.2 billion this year for improvements to distribution, transmission and storage systems and for pipeline safety. 

PUBLIC CONTACT: Customers with questions or concerns about the construction work may call SoCalGas’ Customer Contact Center 24-hours a day, seven-days a week at 800-427-2200. Our top priorities are to work safely and to provide the communities we serve with safe and reliable natural gas service.
