LOS ANGELES (AP) — A major traffic corridor through the Santa Monica Mountains has reopened after nearly a monthlong closure for a water project.

The Department of Water and Power says Coldwater Canyon Avenue reopened Tuesday night, two days ahead of schedule following a project to replace segments of a 99-year-old, 60-inch-diameter water line.

The closures ran from Ventura Boulevard to Mulholland Drive.

Coldwater Canyon carries traffic between the San Fernando Valley and western areas of Los Angeles.

The pipeline had to be replaced to ensure reliability and to comply with federal water quality regulations.

A 2009 pipe rupture at Ventura Boulevard flooded homes and businesses. Claims neared $8 million, repairs cost $700,000 and 4 million gallons of water were lost.
