Beverly Hills, CA (October 6, 2020) – The City of Beverly Hills has contracted with Toro Enterprises to begin its Water Main Replacement Project, which will take place in three phases beginning later this month and ending early 2022.
As part of its Capital Improvement Program (CIP), the City will be replacing approximately 4.5 miles of aging pipeline on portions of Loma Vista Dr., San Ysidro Dr. and Coldwater Canyon Dr. Replacing these pipelines is critical to maintaining the City’s water infrastructure as they connect to six of the nine reservoirs in the City and have contributed to over 25 main line breaks over the years. The pipelines are constructed of cast iron and steel materials, installed in the 1920s to 1960s.
Phase One will begin October 26, 2020 to April 2021 on Loma Vista Dr. between Evelyn Place and Doheny Rd. Work hours will be Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sections of each street will intermittingly be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction during work hours. All through traffic will be advised to use Coldwater Canyon Dr. or an alternate route. Local access will be allowed.
Phase Two is planned to begin May of 2021 on San Ysidro Dr. and Phase Three will take place on Coldwater Canyon Dr. June 2021.
