Glendale Narrows Work Continues

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ contractor, JF Engineering, continues to work hard to repair of damaged embankment and levee toe within the Glendale Narrows section of the Los Angeles River Flood Control Channel at Reach 4D.

Last week, the contractor finished moving derrick stone along the East bank grouted stone toe to install the water diversion barriers.

K rails will be used to divert the water away from the damaged levee. After the water is diverted, dewatering systems will be put in place to “dry” out the repair area.

Also on site last week, the Corps had their Geotechnical Engineer and Engineering Geologist survey the site in anticipation of the upcoming control and diversion of water activities.

JF Engineering’s construction office was also set up in the staging yard at the end of Rigali Ave.

Work on this project began in the summer of 2017. The Corps is anticipating that the construction period will last approximately 5 months.
