Altadena City Council: Mount Lowe Plus Drive Median Landscaping Project, Smart Gardening Webinars



Los Angeles County Public Works is pleased to announce the start of construction on Phase 1 of the Mount Lowe Drive Median Landscaping Project. The works will begin at the end of November 2021 and, weather permitting, will end in the summer of 2022.

Phase 1 of the project will bring new drought tolerant landscaping to the median, improved pedestrian access with walking trails throughout the median, improved drainage with the construction of a biological ditch and other improvements to the waterway. site.

Tentatively, on Monday November 29, 2021, our contractor for this project will place a temporary chain link fence around the median permit. Access to the median will be limited during the various construction phases to allow construction activities. For your safety, please do not enter closed areas.

During the various phases of the work, temporary “PARKING PROHIBITED” signs may be put up at least 48 hours in advance. During construction, traffic may be restricted for limited periods or the road may be closed intermittently Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. Access to the houses will be maintained at all times, except during periods when it is impossible to do so. Any road closures will end by the end of the working day to restore access. For your safety and the success of your project, please obey all traffic controls, detour routes, parking restrictions and flaggers; and exercise caution around construction activities.

Routine updates for this project will be provided during the various phases of construction.
