Del Amo and Bloomfield Gas Co. Project Will Impact Traffic for Weeks


By Brian Hews

The Southern California Gas Company will be performing a “valve automation test” to ensure the structural integrity of a high pressure gas line that runs under Del Amo Blvd. at the intersection of Del Amo and Bloomfield.

The project will last for at least eleven weeks, according to city officials and started this past Monday Feb 1.

The project is actually in Lakewood but encroaches into Cerritos, and the Gas Co. had to pull encroachment permits with Cerritos.

It is a large project necessitating the placement of K-rails and “impact attenuators,” which are the barrels placed at the point of the K-rails to prevent direct impact by a wayward automobile.

As of press time, city officials told HMG-CN that westbound Del Amo east of Bloomfield will be down to one lane approximately one-half mile from the intersection; it was unknown how the eastbound lanes will be affected.
