DWP work causes Griffith Park road closure

If you're one of the thousands who bypass the I-5 by speeding through Griffith Park daily, heads up!

A heavily traveled section of Crystal Springs Drive between the LA Zoo and Park Central will be closed from March 1st through November 1st to accommodate the DWP's massive River Supply Conduit replacement project.

The section of the road that is closed runs from the intersection of Crystal Springs Drive and Griffith Park Drive northward to the bus turnaround at the Autry Museum.

The detour route is Griffith Park Drive, accessed near Shanes' Inspiration. Or the freeway, which is more appropriate and a heck of a lot shorter.

For those taking the detour, remember that the speed limit is 25 mph in the park.
