LA City Update:
“Our crews started work on the LA River Bikeway 1C the second weekend of January (1/7-1/8), the first weekend was a Holiday. So we have been out there for only four weekends so far. The initial work, which is starting at the North end of this section of bikeway (Fletcher Dr) involves sawcutting around the pullboxes, followed by the removal of all of the concrete around the pullboxes (very labor intensive and time consuming). We then have to rework the conduit and reset the pullbox at a lower grade so we can pour a concrete cap to seal each pullbox. All of this work has to be done before we even consider pulling in new wires to get the lights back on, and this is the issue that the residents don’t seem to understand.
Per Palani, field supervisor, we may be able to get as many as twenty-one (21) of the lights on 1C operating by the end of this weekend’s.
Also, per Palani, he estimates that we will complete this section by June, 2012.”
