WHAT: SoCalGas will be performing pipeline replacement work along West Verdugo Ave. in between Orchard Dr. and North Reese Pl. in the City of Burbank. Work is scheduled to begin Monday, October 5 and is expected to continue through January 2021. 

To perform this project safely, the eastbound lanes of West Verdugo Ave. will be reduced to one lane and there will be no access to the McDonald’s parking lot via West Verdugo Ave., during work hours. 

Traffic control cones and flaggers will help direct the flow of traffic. Residents, local businesses, and commuters may hear work-related noise and see excavation equipment and vehicles during construction hours.
