LADWP closed this segment of Coldwater Canyon Avenue to through traffic on March 23 to accommodate the replacement of a major water trunk line in the area. The closure was in effect weekdays and Saturdays from morning to evening and also involved left turn restrictions. Left turn restrictions will remain in effect until June 1 as minor work continues just south of Ventura Boulevard on the west side of Coldwater Canyon in the Studio City area of Los Angeles.

Drivers who may be affected by the left turn restrictions are encouraged to consider other routes, including Cahuenga Boulevard/Highland Avenue, Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Beverly Glen Boulevard, the Hollywood Freeway, and Interstate 405 or take Metro – visit for more information.
