See attached map. The repairs on the pipes causing road delays and traffic back-up throughout Studio City and Valley Village will be expected to continue through next year.

The repairs on the pipes causing road delays and traffic back-up throughout Studio City and Valley Village will be expected to continue through next year.

Paul Krekorian’s staff representative reported to residents that one phase of the construction is near completion, but that another will soon begin.

Theis causing flagging along Coldwater Canyon from Van Noord to Hacienda through next year. In July, the construction at Magnolia Boulevard will be completed, but more construction will hit Whitsett Avenue at Magnolia Boulevard in Valley Village near the 101 Freeway. That work, traveling south on Whitsett should be completed about a year from now.

“They are replacing pipes that are about 100 years old, it is aging infrastructure and needs to be improved,” said Yazzetta. Each pipe is about 60-inches wide and 30 to 40 feet in length. 

The Trunk Line-5 will consist of the installation of approximately 6,950 feet of (1.3 miles) of 60-inch and 54-inch diameter potable water pipelines, 6 butterfly valves, and one jack. The project route is along Coldwater Canyon Avenue from 265 feet north of Avenida Del Sol Drive to Moorpark Street, and along Moorpark Street from Coldwater Canyon Avenue to 60 feet east of Babcock Avenue.

Construction started on June 1, 2011 on Coldwater Canyon Avenue between Van Noord Avenue and Dickens Street. Tentative construction completion date is September 2015. Construction of the pipeline will be broken into 12 work zones and each zone will be approximately 800 feet long. Some work zones may be combined to accelerate the construction. There will be one traffic lane in each direction adjacent to the work zones. Parking will be restricted in some traffic transition areas.

The $15 million project will take through September 2015 to complete.

Speaking of Magnolia....What's the deal with the stretch between Cahuenga and Vineland? Is it ever going to be fixed so it is somewhat drive-able? It's horrendous now and has been for quite awhile.

In China they are building 34 story hotels in 17 days. How is it that this project is expected to take 4 years? I have never seen slower work than what I'm witnessing on the Coldwater project.

Mere child's play for what's coming up next for NoHo from your benevolent LADWP. Called the Unit 5 & 6 Upper Reach River Supply Conduit Improvement project, This project will tear up Burbank Blvd between Whitnall and Lankershim and Lankershim from Burbank to Van Owen for several years. Get ready with ear plugs and gas masks for this project. From LADWP web site: Final EIR Completed: 2008 Design Completion: Autumn 2012 Construction: 2013 to 2016 If you want the gory details what's been going on already with this project go to the ExhoPark-SilverLakePatch. Look for Blog Part 1, 2, and 3: DWP's New Pipeline

......I know, I hear ya. I've seen hotels in Vegas go up in a year. The city "milked" the Expo Line, and the OrangeLine Ext. in Chatsworth. Whats strange was, they got the fly over bridge foundation done in a week, but the destination area of the Chatsworth Station sat for months

Here's the link to the video of the hotel going up. Granted the Chinese are building things just to prove they can, but I find the current accepted time table for project completions unacceptable We need to change the current method of road repair/trunk line/road improvements. Coldwater Canyon should have been completed months ago... http://www.zerohedge.com/news/timelapse-video-30-story-chinese-hotel-completed-15-days
