People who travel on Manhattan Beach Boulevard between Aviation Boulevard and Inglewood Avenue need to be aware of road work through Sept. 9 that could cause traffic delays.
The city of Redondo Beach's effort to improve the road way by using "local Measure R funds" means the 36,000 vehicles that typically traverse the road way on weekdays may be impacted.
"We're making a nicer, safer street once again," said John Mate, transportation engineer for the city of Redondo Beach. He said that unless there's an emergency, at least one lane in each direction will be open at all times.
Manhattan Beach Boulevard is a thoroughfare, and gateway for those heading north and south on the 405 freeway, which drivers connect with after turning onto Inglewood Avenue and proceeding a short distance.
Mate told Patch it's been 20 years since road work such as this has been done on this stretch of the street.
The construction work spans from Redondo Beach Avenue/Vail Street on the west to Inglewood Avenue on the east.
The city is adding more ADA compliant curbs and upgrading existing ones to meet current standards, said Mate.
Curb and gutter work is also part of the project, as is excavating the street approximately six inches and then laying down new asphalt, said Mate. The curb and gutter work will improve drainage, he said.
Road work days and hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with work going past 5 p.m. when needed.
