Updated information as of 8/4/17 from Gurmet Khara in Councilmember Koretz's office:
Final reminder of the SoCal Gas Pipeline Replacement project taking place on Sepulveda Blvd from Getty Center Drive to Sunset Way in Council Districts 5/11 beginning Monday August 7, 2017.
This work will be done in segments Monday through Saturday from 9:00am-3:00pm including some night work from 10:00pm-6:00am. The project is from August 2017 to January 2018.
Please help us outreach to the community since Sepulveda Blvd is a major thoroughfare. Drivers are advised to use the 405 freeway as an alternate route to avoid heavy traffic on Sepulveda Blvd. Message boards are being placed along Sepulveda Blvd and the 405 freeway to alert drivers of the project. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact Juan Gonzalez, Project Manager at 714-287-9203 or Gurmet Khara, Council District 5 at 818-971-3088.
Thank you for your attention and I will be sending out monthly updates.

As expected, there will be traffic impact for Bel-Air residents. There will be signage and restricted access to residents in certain areas of Bellagio Road.
Hours of project work, including Saturday night work on Sepulveda will be in the following phases:
Monday - Friday — 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Phase 4 – Church Lane Rd intersection: the Saturday night work is from 10:00PM to 6:00 AM

The Bel-Air Association and local residents have met with SoCalGas Co and CD5’s Gurmet Khara to help minimize the impact on not only the traffic but also the trees that will be affected by the project.
