Don’t go there.
As part of the street widening and roadway improvements, work crews will conduct sidewalk/roadway reconstruction, installation of storm drains, catch basins, traffic signals and street lighting, and the realignment and restriping of traffic lanes. Additional street improvements on the north side of Venice Boulevard east of National Boulevard will follow, and a supplemental notice will be issued.
Starting the week of August 25, 2014, temporary lane closures will be implemented on Westbound Venice Boulevard during nighttime hours for the relocation of K-Rail and restriping of traffic lanes to delineate the new work areas along the north side of the street.
