Last week’s heatwave has finally passed!
But did you know Lynwood’s Public Works crews were out in full force last week working during record-breaking heat to ensure our City is clean and safe?
Some of the work they completed in 90-100+ degrees:
Cleared the following alleys of illegal dumping, debris and weeds:
- Atlantic Ave. west from Fernwood Ave. to Brewster Ave. alley — cleanup piles abandoned clothes, food, dressers, trash, full size vertical piano,
- Long Beach Blvd. east from Burton Ave. to Magnolia Ave. alley — large piles construction debris, broken plaster, bricks, trash, shopping carts full trash,
- Atlantic Ave. east (Primo Burger alley) from Olanda St. to Blount Pl. — couch, debris, cart filled with clothed and trash and
- Atlantic Ave. east from MLK, Jr. Blvd. to Walnut Ave. (7-11 alley) — bumpers, auto parts, litter boxes, pile broken white wood shelves, bags trash and food.
Crews also worked through the heat to:
- Paint 2,024 feet of street legends, 8,110 feet of crosswalks and 2,250 feet of curbing and 10,500 feet of intersections (to deter burnouts),
- Services 79 locations for weed abatement and abandoned item pick-ups,
- Removed transient debris from two locations,
- And much more (this is a very small sample of the work completed last week).
Thank you to our Public Works crews who work through all kinds of weather to ensure that Lynwood streets and alleys are clear of debris and safe for our residents!
