Beginning Monday, September 14, 2015, Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) will be conducting hydrostatic pressure testing of the new natural gas pipelines it installed last year along Victoria Street.
The project will be centralized at the intersection of Victoria Street and Central Avenue and is expected to last through the end of October. UPDATE (Nov. 2): Delays and weather has pushed the project into November.
What to expect: A staging area will be set up in the middle of Victoria Street east of Central Avenue with work being conducted in the intersection and along the eastbound left turn lanes on Victoria Street at Central Avenue.
Left turn lanes in all directions at the intersection will be blocked and no left turns will be permissible for the duration of the project. At times, Central Avenue will be down to one lane north and/or southbound.
Campus Traffic Mitigations:
Campus Police and Parking Services are working closely with SoCalGas to mitigate the impacts to campus, especially around the start of the semester; however, heavy traffic congestion is expected.
Faculty, staff and students are strongly advised to consider alternative routes to campus via Avalon and allow for additional time when coming to campus.
Updates will be posted on the Construction Updates page.
For questions or concerns, contact Jessica Garcia at (310) 243-3725.
