Upcoming County Development and Via Marina Construction

We would like to keep you all informed on the upcoming construction that will be happening around the marina due to the Marina del Rey 18-Inch Waterline Replacement Phase IIIB project.

The project involves the construction of approximately 5,950 linear feet of new 18-inch diameter steel pipeline to replace the existing, aged, and undersized 10 and 14 inch-diameter water mains along Via Marina from Marquesas Way to Bora Bora Way, and along Fiji Way from Admiralty Way to the end of Fiji Way. All fire hydrants and customer service connections will be improved as well.

The purpose of the project is to improve the Marina del Rey Water System to meet domestic and fire protection water demands more effectively.  This project is the fourth and final part of a multi-phase plan to replace the existing Marina del Rey Water System.

Barring unforeseen circumstances, the construction dates will be as follows:

Construction Start:    December 15, 2014
Construction End:     August 2015
Construction Hours:  Monday – Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm

A portion of the Fisherman’s Village parking lot will be used as a staging area for construction, but an overflow parking lot located directly across the street will be available for patron use throughout construction.

Also, please note that construction activities may cause traffic delays between the hours of 8:00am – 5:00pm, Monday through Friday.  One lane will be open at all times for motorists along Via Marina and Fiji Way for the duration of the project and flagmen will direct traffic when needed.  For the safety of everyone, please exercise caution while in the vicinity of all construction activities by observing all traffic controls and flagmen.

Along with traffic control, the Marvin Braude bike path located along Fiji Way will be rerouted throughout construction.  All 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.  Please note tha the temporary bike lane detour will have two directions of bicycle traffic riding on the outer northbound lane.  Signage will be posted to indicate all closures and detours.
