carlson park lightWork has begun on the Carlson Park Streetlight Upgrade Project. The Public Works Department Engineering Division will be working with Alfaro Communications Construction, Inc. to replace the existing high voltage series circuit to low voltage parallel circuit. This will include changing the wiring, replacing damaged poles, and replacing existing bulbs with new energy efficient LED fixtures.




The project will take place around the following locations:

- Carlson Park Neighborhood, with Jasmine Ave. to the east, Keystone Ave. to the west, Culver Blvd to the north, and Ballona Creek to the south.

- Washington Blvd. from Ince Blvd. to Landmark St.

- Cardiff Ave. from Culver Blvd. to Venice Blvd.

Construction hours will be from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. Every effort will be made by the City and by the contractors to minimize dust, noise, and construction inconvenience. The project is expected to be completed in Summer 2018.

If you have any questions, please contact engineering project manager Javier De La Cruz at 310-253-5606 or Public Works inspector Nake Vaea at 951-741-8191.
