LINDERO CANYON ROAD/101 FREEWAY BRIDGE RECONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN ON SEPTEMBER 16
The City of Westlake Village is about to begin construction on the Lindero Canyon/101 Freeway bridge project. The project is scheduled to commence on September 16. In addition to sending notification letters to local residents and businesses, the City will be placing electronic message board signs near the construction area prior to work commencing. This transportation improvement project is being funded by Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro) Measure R Program for highway operations improvements.
It is envisioned that construction will be performed in three different phases. All construction work will take place behind temporary concrete barriers for the safety of both the public and construction workers. It is anticipated that two lanes of travel in each direction will remain open throughout most of the construction. However, there will be short periods of time when only one travel lane will be open. A safe pedestrian route will also be available on one side of the bridge, and pedestrians should look for signage as a guide during each of the three construction phases.
When this project is completed, the Lindero Canyon Road/101 bridge will feature an additional travel lane in each direction of traffic and a series of unique aesthetic improvements. Residents are encouraged to contact City Engineer, John Knipe at 818- 706-1613 for further information or to submit questions to the City via CityCare on the City website www.wlv.org
