STUDIO CITY SINKHOLE
UPDATE - FEBRUARY 23, 2017
Repair work has continued round the clock on the sinkhole at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Woodbridge Street. The sinkhole is stabilized and while it is open, the City will rehabilitate the sewer under Laurel Canyon, as the sewer is being bypassed to minimize any similar incidents and future inconvenience for the community.
Once the sewer is rehabilitated and renewed, the sinkhole will be repaired and closed. Crews will be working extended hours until the repair is complete, which is expected to take several weeks.
One lane of traffic in both directions on Laurel Canyon Boulevard will continue to be open during repairs, although intermittent closures may occur to support construction activity. Woodbridge Street remains closed on both sides of Laurel Canyon. Expect delays in the area and use caution while traversing through the construction zone.
LADOT Traffic Officers are deployed during the roadway closures for repairs. Special Traffic Operations engineers created a Traffic Management Plan (TMP) to facilitate people and vehicle movements in the affected area.
