Construction Alert-Chakemco Street Water Main Replacement


The City of South Gate continues its efforts to upgrade the existing City streets and the reliability of its utilities. In this project, Chakemco Street from Atlantic Avenue to Legacy Lane will be landscaped and resurfaced.  As the first phase of the project, the old existing watermain,  originally built in 1956, will be replaced.

What to Expect:

Watermain construction is anticipated to start in early June 2019 and the construction is expected to last up to 90 days.  To minimize the impact to the public, the construction will occur at night from 8:30 pm to 5:00 am.

Please follow the traffic control operations, no parking, and detour signs.

A Safety Message:

As you are approaching the construction work zone, please use caution. Slow down and maintain 15 mph speed limit. Please watch and respect the construction signs, cones, flag-person and other advance warning signs and safety measures alerting motorists to changes in traffic patterns. To avoid potential delays, please use alternate routes.


For more information, please call the South Gate Water Division at (323) 563-5790.
