Roadwork ahead: St. Bernard Avenue lane closures extended
The northbound travel lanes in 5300 block of St. Bernard Avenue will stay closed through Monday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m., the city announced. During this time, northbound traffic will remain shifted to a single lane of traffic. The closure is being implemented as a safety precaution until the final layer of asphalt is placed.
Residents and businesses in this area were notified of the closure through a neighborhood canvass. During this time, there will be large trucks and heavy equipment hauling materials in the area. Residents and commuters are reminded to use caution when driving, bicycling and walking near the construction site.
The $7.2 million Gardena Drive (St. Bernard Avenue – Paris Avenue) project was designed by Arcadis and is being constructed by Beverly Construction. Click here to view the community meeting presentation and map of the project.
