Public Works Summer Projects
Fire Station 1 – Renovations
Various renovations at Fire Station #1 are underway and include: building roof replacement, kitchen and bathroom remodeling, bay door replacement, seismic retrofitting, and HVAC duct cleaning. These renovations are occurring in stages and are expected to be finished by autumn.
Modifications to Wastewater Pump Stations 1 & 7
The project contractor has mobilized and preliminary site investigations are now in progress. Construction is expected to begin in June 2017, and this yearlong project will be completed in phases. Acacia Park and Acacia Pool, which is next to Pump Station 1, will be closed during construction.
Fiber Optic Project
Underground fiber optic infrastructure will be installed along El Segundo Boulevard, from Illinois Street to Continental Boulevard starting in May 2017, and the construction is expected to last approximately three months.
Recreation Park Lighting Upgrade
New lighting equipment has been installed at the El Segundo Park Tennis Courts. Now everyone can enjoy premium LED lighting with greater computerized control, and the City will see reduced energy usage and electricity costs.
Imperial Highway Resurfacing
Imperial Highway eastbound between Sepulveda and Aviation has been resurfaced. Rubberized asphalt was used for this project and helped to divert between 7,000-8,000 waste tires from our landfills! Take a look at the before and after project photos:
