07/19/2016 The Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works is constructing the Marina del Rey Parking Lot 9 Project (located at 14110 Palawan Way) to install permanent stormwater best management practices to address water quality in the Marina and enhance the waterfront promenade by adding two new parklets with seating, new bioswale planting and interpretive signage. Mobilization and construction by GMZ Engineering is anticipated to start on July 25, 2016, with approximately a 4 month duration. Working hours will be from 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday (except holidays).

The work will be phased to allow for Parking Lot 9 to remain open and in operation during construction, just with reduced parking spaces. Some activities will also take place along the sidewalk by Mother’s Beach to improve ADA pedestrian walkways, beginning in September.

Please be alert, observe posted signage and proceed with caution through the construction areas. Businesses are open during construction and driveway access will be maintained. Expect intermittent delays.

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as construction progresses. For more information, please contact our Project Manager, Hannah Dewey, at (626) 300-3222 or hdewey@dpw.lacounty.gov.
05/03/2016 Via Marina Road Lane Closures: May 2016 - Spring 2018

In the next few weeks, construction-related activities along Via Marina in Marina del Rey will require lane closures that will continue until 2018. The road lane closures are necessitated by redevelopment and infrastructure improvement projects that LA County officials are working to coordinate in an effort to minimize traffic delays and other negative impacts on the community.

Here is latest information about the construction schedule:
• Northbound Via Marina traffic will be re-routed to a single lane between Marquesas Way and Panay Way during working hours, up to four days a week, occurring between Mondays and Saturdays, from 8 am – 5 pm, over an 11-month period starting May 2016.
• Additional closures are anticipated in the Spring of 2017, when construction is expected to begin on the City of LA's Venice Dual Force Main Project. At that point, both north and southbound traffic along Via Marina will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction. A center lane will be reserved for turning and emergency vehicles. That traffic pattern is expected to remain in effect around the clock for at least 10 months.

County officials are working with both the City of LA and private developers with projects underway in the Via Marina area to coordinate construction activities in order to reduce traffic delays, noise, and other negative impacts. Still, motorists and residents are likely to experience delays and other inconveniences related to construction activities. We appreciate the public’s patience during this period.

For more information, on current and future construction activity in Marina del Rey, visit the LA County Dept of Beaches & Harbors website at http://beaches.lacounty.gov or the LA County Dept of Public Works' Marina del Rey website at http://dpw.lacounty.gov/go/mdr.

Please contact LA County Department of Beaches & Harbors with questions at (310)305-9503 or info@bh.lacounty.gov.
02/11/2016 The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, on behalf of the Marina Del Rey Water System, had issued a contract to Minco Construction to construct the Marina Del Rey 18-Inch Waterline Replacement Phase IIIB project. The majority of the waterline pipe has already been installed. Due to a construction issue, further repair work will need to be completed. Below is a tentative schedule of construction/lane closures associated with this waterline pipe repair:

- Fiji Way from Admiralty Way to the end of Fiji Way:
Construction Start Date: 2/16/16
Estimated Completion Date: April 2016

- Via Marina from Marquesas Way to Bora Bora Way:
Estimated Construction Start Date: March 2016
Estimated Completion Date: May 2016

As part of this work, all steel plates in the roadway will be removed, the sidewalk, curb & gutter will be restored, and the trench will be paved back with permanent asphalt. Construction activities may cause traffic delays between the hours of 8:00am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.

For cyclist safety, the portion of the Marvin Braude bike path located along Fiji Way will continue to be rerouted throughout construction. Cyclists will be directed to cross the intersection of Admiralty Way and Fiji Way to use temporary bike path lanes located along the outer northbound lane of Fiji Way, and the detour will end at the terminus of Fiji Way. These shared bike lanes have delineators to separate the bidirectional flow of cyclists. The bicycle lanes will be restored back to their pre-construction alignment in May 2016.

For the safety of everyone, please exercise caution while in the vicinity of all construction activities by observing all traffic controls and flagmen. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as construction progresses. For more information, please contact our Project Manager, Nima Parsa, at (310)317-1389 or nparsa@dpw.lacounty.gov.
05/18/2015 Behind the green fence on Washington Boulevard, a transformative project is taking place. A 56-year-old flood control basin is being renovated to become a healthier, more-vibrant ecosystem with new opportunities for recreation and observing wildlife in a natural setting.

The $13 million Oxford Basin Multiuse Enhancement Project will increase flood protection for neighboring properties and provide park-like amenities; a lush, native plant habitat and improved water quality within the basin. Other key project elements include an illuminated walking path, bike lanes, decorative fencing and the replacement of non-native and diseased vegetation with 730 native trees and more than 45,000 native plants.

Construction at the project site will resume in the latter part of May or early June with trucks removing wet sediment and soil from the basin. LA County Public Works will work closely with the contractor and neighboring communities to limit the temporary increase in dust, noise and traffic.

The project is on target for completion in spring 2016, and Public Works will provide regular email updates on its progress. For more information and to see project renderings, please visit the Oxford Basin website at www.dpw.lacounty.gov/go/oxford, or contact Vincent Yu at (626)300-3203 or VYU@dpw.lacounty.gov.

06/30/2014 Notice anything different last night or this morning on your drive along Via Marina & Admiralty Way? A project to equip 10 busy intersections in Marina del Rey with energy-efficient, LED highway safety lighting was completed this past Saturday. The County’s existing system of high-pressure sodium lights in the Marina was replaced with cooler-burning, LED technology expected to produce enough energy savings to power three average-sized homes for a year.

Highway safety lights are mounted atop traffic signals to illuminate intersections and improve night-time visibility for motorists and pedestrians. LA County Public Works currently maintains 2,700 of these lights at intersections throughout County unincorporated areas. Marina del Rey is the first County community to see the benefits of a $1.2 million improvement plan that will provide LED upgrades to each of these County-maintained intersections. This larger effort is expected to take two years and $1.2 million to complete—the cost of which will be recouped with energy conservation savings over a five-year period.
06/11/2014 The Oxford Basin Multiuse Enhancement Project is scheduled to be considered for approval by the California Coastal Commission at their hearing this Friday, June 13, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. at Huntington Beach City Hall.

You can view the full hearing agenda and the Coastal Commission’s staff report at http://www.coastal.ca.gov/mtgcurr.html.

02/19/2014 The Department of Public Works has been managing the Admiralty Way Street Improvement Project, originally scheduled to be completed in February 2014. Unfortunately, due to some uncontrollable scheduling conflicts with a Utility Company, the new estimated completion date is April 2014. The sequencing of the utility installation was critical in order to power up the irrigation system that would provide water to the newly planted flowers and trees. Without the powered irrigation system, there is a delay in the planting and ultimately paving phase. All other work that could be done by our Contractor during the delay was completed. The Utility Company has just completed their work so we look forward to moving along quickly with the remainder of the project. We appreciate your continued patience and look forward to celebrating a fine outcome with the Community.
01/13/2014 Expect temporary Traffic Signal outages during Admiralty Way Street improvement project, 1/13/2014-1/16/2014. As part of Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works Admiralty Way Street improvement, there will be a rolling traffic signal outage while the contractor is working to install new traffic signal arms and heads to accommodate the new lane configurations. The signal outage will last from 9 am to 3pm Monday at Fiji and Admiralty. Other intersections that may be affected are Mindanao and Admiralty, Palawan and Admiralty and Bali and Admiralty. City of Los Angeles will be on hand to assist with managing traffic control. Thank you for your patience.
11/20/2013 Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works has begun grinding and repaving Admiralty Way as part of the Road Improvement Project. This week Fiji to Bali are scheduled to be impacted. There will be a significant amount of equipment, dust & debris as well as increased intermittent traffic congestion. Law Enforcement will be present as needed to ensure public roadway safety.

Consider taking Lincoln or Washington to get out of the Marina but remember the entrance into the Marina at Palawan is closed due to a developer project.
10/29/2013 Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works is concentrating on the Median work all along Admiralty Way. As part of the project, all of the old roots and debris from the trees that were previously located within the medians were removed. Medians getting reconfigured require the old unsuitable material to be removed and replaced with a new structural base material. Once this material is placed and compacted, new curb and gutter will be installed. The community should start seeing that work take place this week. Things may look no different from the morning to the afternoon for those who are just passing through, however, progress is being made.
09/30/2013 The Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works is rehabilitating Admiralty Way with ADA driveway, curbs, sidewalks, median work including new landscape, traffic improvements and of course pavement. To make these improvements happen, Admiralty Way is reduced to one lane (the outside lane) between Fiji Way and Via Marina. Construction is expected to last through February 2014. Watch the transformation and please drive safely.
08/27/2013 The Los Angeles County Dept. of Public Works is constructing the Admiralty Way Street Improvement Project on Admiralty Way (between Fiji Way and Via Marina) and on Via Marina (from Washington Blvd to Marquesas Way) in Marina del Rey.
