Sunday Traffic Interruptions Expected as "Triplets" Relocate

Motorists are advised to expect some temporary traffic delays beginning at 8 a.m. Sunday, April 30 as the City relocates the three old houses known as the "Triplets." Traffic will be temporarily stopped at intersections and parking will be banned along the route. No street closures are scheduled.

The route begins at 22nd Street between 'O' and 'P' streets. The route proceeds north on 22nd Street to 'Q' Street; west on 'Q' from 22nd to 19th Street; north on 19th Street from "Q" to Vine Street; west on Vine from 19th to 17th Street; north on 17th from Vine to 'X' Street; west on 'X' from 17th to 16th Street; south on 16th to 'W' Street; west on 'W' to 14th Street; north on 14th from 'W' to Claremont; then one block east on Claremont to the vacant City-owned land at 15th and Claremont streets in the North Bottoms neighborhood.

The relocation is expected to take about five hours.

The environmental impact statement from the Federal Highway Administration for the Antelope Valley project deemed the three houses, built in 1906, to be historically significant. The houses must be moved due to the Antelope Valley construction project. They are currently located on what will be the slope of the flood channelís bank. The houses will be relocated to the historic North Bottoms neighborhood, where they will be rehabilitated and sold for single-family occupancy.
