BRIEFLY : Traffic: Construction of Wheelchair Ramps

Traffic lanes in several streets in Torrance, Rolling Hills and San Pedro will be reduced or closed next month when construction starts on wheelchair ramps.

Del Amo Boulevard westbound and Hamilton Avenue northbound will be reduced to one lane and the left-hand turn lanes during working hours, said Donna Guyovich, spokeswoman for the county Public Works Department.

Bandini Street in San Pedro will be reduced to one lane in each direction, Guyovich said.

Work on Del Amo Boulevard eastbound, Hamilton Avenue southbound, and 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th, and 7th streets in San Pedro is not expected to affect traffic flow.

Putting in the ramps is expected to be completed in June or July and cost about $59,000, Guyovich said.
