With the water off, our focus is now on making sure we can get our infrastructure repaired and traffic moving as soon as possible. My office is working to ensure there is careful coordination among the various city agencies that will be required to recover from this major event. They include DWP, Transportation, Sanitation, Street Services, Fire, and Police, as well as UCLA. Sunset Boulevard near UCLA will remain closed tomorrow, so commuters should plan ahead and people should avoid the area unless absolutely necessary. Commuters should check online and consider Santa Monica and Olympic as alternates. I want to thank our first responders and those who will be working around the clock to get us back to normal.
According the LADWP, crews have completed shutting off water to the 30-inch trunkline that ruptured earlier this afternoon on Sunset Boulevard, near UCLA.
