North Torrance Water Main Replacement Project I-24 and Water Main and Sewer Replacement and Street Improvements at Via Corona
Project Manager: John Dettle, P.E.
Project Engineer: Jeff Kidd, P.E.
The Public Works Department is overseeing the construction of new water mains and customer service lines in the northeast portion of the City. The project is part of the Department's annual program to replace old and deteriorated cast iron water mains throughout the City with new ductile iron pipe, resulting in improved reliability of water service (including reducing the number of costly water main breaks), improved water quality, and more responsive fire protection.
The project consists of the installation approximately 21,000 lineal feet of new water mains, valves, fire hydrants, and service lines and meters; and the abandonment of the existing water mains. The project area is bounded by Redondo Beach Boulevard to the north, Van Ness Avenue to the east, 166th Place to the south, and Crenshaw Boulevard to the west (please refer to map).
The project also includes the installation of approximately 625 lineal feet of water mains, valves, fire hydrants, and service lines and meters; and the abandonment of the existing water mains on Via Corona in south Torrance (please refer to map). The work on Via Corona also includes the replacement of a portion of the existing sewer pipe, and reconstruction of the asphalt pavement and valley gutter from Vista Montana to the east end of the street.
Construction is scheduled to begin in July, 2005 and continue through December, 2005. The project budget is approximately $3,000,000.
