Project Description

LADWP will upgrade the Lucile Pressure Regulator Station, which is an important part of water infrastructure in the West LA area. Built in 1962, the underground station will be upgraded to support various developments in the area and will increase water reliability and redundancy.

Construction will be completed in two phases:

Phase 1 - Relief Station (October 2020 to January 2021) 
A new pressure relief station will be installed at Grosvenor Blvd. at Hammack St. Access to businesses and residences will be maintained at all times. See map below.

Phase 2 - Regulator Station (January 2021 to December 2021) 
The regulator station located at Lucile St. and Inglewood Blvd. will be upgraded with a new underground vault. Lucile St. will be closed to through traffic between Inglewood Blvd. and the western edge of the alley. Construction on Lucile St. will be split into two separate work zones to maintain access to the apartment complex located at 5455 Inglewood Blvd. See map below.

The relief station and regulator station work together to reduce high pressure water to manageable levels in order to ensure the safe delivery of clean, refreshing tap water to surrounding communities. Both phases require excavating deep, open trenches. To ensure the safety of the crew and the community, the work area will be closed to motorists until construction is complete. Water services may be temporarily interrupted at times but affected customers will be notified in advance.

Work Hours

Monday through Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. 
Occasional Saturday work may be required. Saturday work hours are 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM
