Los Angeles River Channel Wall Repairs Underway

U.S. Army Corps of Engineers recently awarded a contract for like-for-like repair of damaged embankment and levee toe within the Glendale Narrows section of the Los Angeles River Flood Control Channel at Reach 4D.

In order to conduct the repair, a limited portion of the channel will be dewatered. Approximately 3,000 square feet of vegetation and sediment will be removed to facilitate the dewatering process. A temporary access ramp into the channel will also be installed.

This week the contractor, JF Engineering, was able to mobilize into the lot off of Rigali Ave. Security fencing was set up on top of the levee, Conex boxes were placed in the staging area, and HESCOs were opened up to allow for access ramp construction.

Also, the access ramp was constructed this week and the excavator has begun to remove derrick stone located along the levee toe to allow for the dewatering barriers to be installed.

The Corps biologist also completed the pre-construction surveys for Endangered Species Act-listed wildlife species in the project area.

According to the Corps, the construction period will last approximately 5 months.
