Traffic Advisory: Pipeline Modernization Project along 190th Street in Torrance and Redondo Beach to Begin on March 5

Infrastructure upgrades are part of a multi-billion-dollar safety enhancement program

Mar 2, 2018


WHAT: SoCalGas will be performing a pipeline modernization project on West 190th Street between South Inglewood Avenue in Redondo Beach to Crenshaw Place in Torrance.

To perform this pipeline improvement project safely, eastbound and westbound lanes on 190th Street will be reduced periodically. Left lanes in both directions will be closed to traffic for approximately two miles, as shown in this link.

During work hours, drivers passing by the work site may see excavation, equipment and vehicles. Traffic control message boards, cones and flagmen will help direct the flow of traffic.

No interruption to natural gas service is anticipated.

During the construction work, customers may smell the odor of natural gas. Although this is normal when crews are working, SoCalGas encourages anyone who smells gas to call us at 1-800-427-2200. SoCalGas is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

WHERE: 190th Street between West 190th Street between South Inglewood Avenue and Crenshaw Place in Redondo Beach and Torrance, as shown in this link.

WHEN: LANE REDUCTIONS: Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m., starting Monday, March 5 through September 2018, as weather and other factors permit.

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. From 2011 through 2016, the company invested nearly $6 billion to upgrade and modernize its natural gas system to enhance safety and reliability.
