Traffic will be congested for six to eight weeks on Crenshaw Boulevard, according to the newsletter from El Camino.

Primoris Services Corporation (PSC) has been contracted by the Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas) to conduct the work for the Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan, which involves inspecting and testing high-pressure gas lines under the street, Jay Fleming, Senior Construction Manager of Jacobs Construction, said.

The southbound No. 1 and 2 lanes of Crenshaw Boulevard will be closed during the work hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, while crews excavate the roadway and test the gas pipeline.

Although construction will be happening over the next six to eight weeks, maybe it will finish up sooner than expected because “we are ahead of schedule so that’s always good,” Fleming said.
