LOS FELIZ, Calif.  — A major construction project to install a new power circuit in Los Feliz will force road closures and limit left-hand turns in the neighborhood starting Tuesday and stretching into the fall.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power will begin installation of a new underground and overhead 4.8-kilovolt circuit to alleviate other overloaded circuits that collectively serve about 5,500 customers in Los Feliz, the utility company said.

The first of the project’s three phases begins Tuesday, according to a statement from the DWP.

As a result, no left turns will be allowed at the intersection of Los Feliz Boulevard and Hillhurst Avenue on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Officials expect this phase to last until May.

In the coming months, construction crews will install 1,750 feet of conduit and more than 6,000 feet of cables and related equipment.

The DWP will also construct two underground vaults necessary to build and maintain the circuit, the statement said.

From early May until late June, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on Los Feliz Boulevard between Vermont Avenue and Cheswic Lane from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays.

Then from June until the end of the project, the same closure will occur at “various intervals,” the statement said.
