A seven-month-long partial closure of Benedict Canyon Drive, a key artery connecting the Westside with Mulholland Drive, begins Tuesday due to a major water system infrastructure project.

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power project will replace a mile of aging water pipeline to ensure reliability and increased capacity for the delivery of drinking water to city residents, and the project will also install four new fire hydrants.

The partial closure will take place May 1 to Nov. 30 from Mulholland Drive to Hutton Drive. The road will be closed between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on scheduled Saturdays.

Benedict Canyon and Liebe Drive will be open to traffic outside of the closure hours. Local residents and designated visitors will be provided access to homes and businesses during the closure.
