The concrete barriers lining Pineglen Road and surrounding foothill homes became public art locations and protectors from debris flow following the 2009 Station Fire. Friday the k-rails will be removed.
The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works will remove storm k-rails along Pineglen Road/Briggs Terrace area Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
"When we came into your community we said we want to put in some protective measures for the next 3 to 5 years," said Chris Stone of Los Angeles County Public Works said during a Crescenta Valley Town Council meeting in May.
Upper portions of Canyonside k-rails will stay for about a year, Stone said.
Removal will begin Friday with crews completing by June 15, Stone said. The sand bags and street cleanings will happen within a week of the k-rail removal.
K-rails near Pennsylvania will be removed only by city of Glendale, according to Stone, who did not know the date for that project.
