Glendale Blvd at Riverside Drive: Closing "Soon"

Expect more traffic headaches as the DWP will close Glendale Blvd between Waverly and Riverside Drive starting in September 2011 for work on the River Supply Conduit Improvement project. (Click on image to enlarge.) 

The notice Mary Olmos of the DWP sent out to Silver Lake community leaders stated, "Currently, the updated schedule for the start of the Glendale Blvd. closure is postponed from August, 2011 to sometime in September, 2011.  The closure is expected to last for at least 6 months."
