There is another sewer project beginning shortly. The City of Los Angeles has funded a project to rehabilitate the sewers that run under West Los Angeles College and south under the Crest, running past Fox Hills Mall and used by the Crest Neighborhood. The project is a clean out and then a replacement of the lining, intended to upgrade service and any noxious odors. This restored sewer line will last for the next hundred years.
The local service access point will be near the entrance to West Los Angeles College in the maintenance parking lot. A 16’ sound wall will be constructed around the project and the new haul road (temporary and later permanent access road) will be used for construction traffic. While it is anticipated that this project will take place almost entirely underground, it will still require some 5 large trucks per day to haul away the detritus of decades needed to prepare the tunnel for the new liner, which will consist of concrete and plastic. The project is expected to take some three years. The City of Los Angeles has committed that there will be no interruption of service and will not cause any other inconvenience including noise, traffic or odor. The project is projected to last through 2010.
