The Southern California Gas Co. will close one eastbound lane of Del Amo Boulevard crossing over the 605 Freeway until approximately mid-August while the company reconstructs a gas pipeline in the area.
For the initial three weeks of the project, which started on May 22, the lane will be open outside of the 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. weekday construction hours.
Starting about June 12, the work hours will extend to 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the lane will be closed full-time, including during non-work hours and weekends. The expanded work hours and lane closure will allow the work to be completed in a shorter period of time and with maximum safety for drivers and workers.
Drivers may experience slow traffic on Del Amo crossing over the 605 during the full three-month work period and may want to consider alternate routes. There will be a few construction periods that also necessitate the closure of the on- and off-ramps of the 605 at Del Amo. Lakewood residents can sign up for an email notification of those closures and other city news at
