Traffic Signals Will Receive Upgrades in Long Beach and Whittier

Damaged traffic signals and equipment in Long Beach and Whittier will be replaced with new equipment, Supervisor Don Knabe announced recently.

The project in Long Beach is at the intersection of Del Amo Boulevard and Susana Road, and involves the installation and modification of the traffic signals at the intersection. The estimated cost of the project is $1,718,375. Construction will begin this month, and the projected completion date is February 2008.

The Whittier project is located at the intersection of Beverly Boulevard and Pioneer Boulevard. This project will involve the installation of conduits, conductors, pull boxes, retrofit kits and lamps to convert the existing out-dated, poorly functioning street light system to a more modern and reliable system. The cost estimate for the project is $192,260. Construction is scheduled to begin in April 2007 and be complete by June 2008.
