Traffic Advisory: SoCalGas Continues Pipeline Improvement Project in the L.A. Gateway Area
Infrastructure upgrades are part of a multi-billion-dollar safety enhancement program
Mar 22, 2018
WHAT: SoCalGas is continuing work on a pipeline modernization project on 190th Street between South Vermont Avenue and South Figueroa Street. To perform this pipeline improvement project safely, eastbound traffic on 190th Street between South Vermont Avenue and the Harbor Freeway (Interstate 110) will be closed to traffic on March 23-24, 2018.
Through May 2018, eastbound and westbound traffic on West 190th Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Eastbound and westbound traffic on West 190th Street between South Vermont Avenue and South Figueroa Street will not be able to make left turns for approximately one-half mile, due to construction work in the middle lane. Westbound traffic will be able to turn left or right onto Vermont Avenue. Eastbound traffic will be able to turn left or right on South Figueroa Street.
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 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 South Vermont Avenue and the Harbor Freeway (Interstate 110), as shown in this link.
WHEN: LANE CLOSURE: Friday, March 23 at 5 p.m. to Saturday, March 24, 2018 at 5 p.m.
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.
