The Torrance Refinery and City of Torrance will activate a test of the Crenshaw and Del Amo Barriers on Wednesday, May 1.  The Crenshaw/Del Amo Barriers are a safety tool designed to protect drivers in case of an emergency. This is a periodic test, which we conduct to ensure the barriers are functioning as intended.

During the brief testing period, a limited section of Crenshaw Boulevard and Del Amo Boulevard will be closed. Motorists may consider alternate routes during this period.  Testing is scheduled as follows:

  • 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. – Crenshaw Boulevard Barriers 
  • 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. – Del Amo Boulevard Barriers

Torrance Police Department will assist to monitor traffic flow. Please follow all traffic signs and drive safely.
