Chairman of the County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors Don Knabe announced plans to contract for the installation of traffic signals at the intersection of Leffingwell Road and Santa Gertrudes Avenue, et al., in the vicinities of Industry and Whittier. Improvements will also include modification of traffic signals and construction of curb ramps. This project is part of Public Works’ ongoing highway construction and maintenance program to provide for improved traffic flow and safety for drivers and pedestrians.
The County Department of Public Works will open bids May 18 on a contract to perform the work.
Work is expected to take 25 working days, with an estimated start in June and completion in July. During construction, Leffingwell Road, Santa Gertrudes Avenue, Lambert Road, and First Avenue may be reduced by one lane in each direction with the left-turn lane closed when in conflict with construction. Seventh Avenue may be reduced to two traffic lanes, one lane for each direction, and a left-turn lane where existing. Clark Avenue will maintain at least two traffic lanes, one lane for each direction, and a left-turn lane where existing during construction. Local access will be maintained at all times.
