Traffic Advisory: SoCalGas to Begin Pipeline Improvement Project on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood on May 21

May 18, 2018

WHAT: SoCalGas will be performing a pipeline modernization project on a segment of natural gas pipeline on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.   

To perform this pipeline replacement safely, eastbound traffic on Sunset Boulevard will be reduced to one lane between Sherbourne Drive and Sunset Plaza Drive. Westbound and eastbound traffic will still be able to make left-hands turn from the center lane into driveways. There will be parking restrictions along the south side of Sunset Boulevard for .10 of a mile. Traffic control message boards and cones will help direct the flow of traffic. Residents and local business owners may hear some work-related noise. During work hours, commuters passing by the work site will see excavation, equipment and vehicles.

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: Sunset Boulevard between Sherbourne Drive and Sunset Plaza Drive in West Hollywood, CA, as shown in this link.

WHEN: Lanes will be reduced from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, from approximately May 21 to mid-July 2018.
