Councilmember Traci Park’s office sent the following April 4 notice to Circling the News that the entire length of Temescal Canyon Road will be under construction starting tomorrow. The newly paved roadway should be done on Friday.
The Bureau of Street Services (BSS) is completing the entire stretch of the road from PCH to Sunset Boulevard.
First, will be the resurfacing of Temescal Canyon from PCH to Bowdoin, and then from Bowdoin to Sunset. It is expected that both segments can be done by the end of the week, Friday, April 7.
This work coincides with spring break at Palisades High School, which should ensure as little traffic disruption as possible on this roadway.
PCH to Bowdoin is to be done in its entirety between Wednesday, April 5, to Thursday, April 6.
The section of road between Bowdoin and Sunset is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5 through Friday, April 7.
It was reported to the councilmember’s office that the signage on Temescal warning motorists of work was inadequate, and crews will be on site early tomorrow, April 5, to assess the signage.
Resurfacing on Temescal Canyon originally began in early November 2022. According to Councilmember’s office, “Despite that recent work, the extraordinary inclement weather of recent months necessitated an unanticipated reconstruction of the street.”
While trying to finish the street, the BSS also had to deal with storm-related requests across the city, such as unexpected potholes.
According to Park’s office, Street Services is working to ensure the road is completed as safely and efficiently as possible.
