ANTONOVICH ANNOUNCES COMPLETION OF QUARTZ HILL STORM DRAIN
LOS ANGELES COUNTY — With the Quartz Hill Storm Drain fully operational and final road improvements being completed, 50th Street West is now open, announced Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
“Residents and business owners of the Quartz Hill community have patiently waited through 11 months of construction for the completion of this vital project,” Supervisor Antonovich said. “Just in time for holiday shopping, and with the rainy season underway, this $15.8 million project will provide much-needed flood relief along Quartz Hill’s busy downtown main corridor.”
The new underground storm drain system runs for two miles along 50th Street West between Avenue K and Avenue M-8. An additional mile of lateral storm drains tie into the main drain from several connecting side streets.
