Work is slowing down for the winter. LAUSD, LAX and the remaining bits of SoFi Stadium continue to forge ahead. The Metro Rail Projects are starting to gear up and the pandemic seems to be tightening its grip on the Southland. Stay safe this holiday season. We will hopefully never see a repeat of the gross negligence from our nation’s leadership in our lifetimes.
Work safe, stay safe
