A section of Glendale Boulevard connecting Silver Lake and Atwater Village is scheduled to reopen at the end of this week after an approximately six-month road closure that generated traffic tie ups and complaints about noise and air pollution. A DWP official, in an email alert to residents, said Glendale Boulevard between Waverly and Riverside Drive is scheduled to reopen by Friday, March 23. The Glendale Boulevard closure is most recent in the north end of Silver Lake as the city’s Department of Water and Power builds a giant new underground water line. In addition to DWP work, nearby residents have also had to endure the installation of new overhead power lines and a gas line on Riverside Drive, according to one city worker on the site today.
There are more disruptions and detours to come. Once Glendale Boulevard reopens, Rokeby Street between Waverly Drive and Rowena Avenue will be subject to a “part-time” road closure for about three months as water line construction continues. DWP will update residents and business owners about upcoming road closures at a community meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 29, at 4:30 pm at Fire Station 56, 2759 Rowena Ave.
