This appears to be phase 4 - a continuation of improvement projects to SGRT. This one will straighten out and widen at least one of the underpasses - 183rd St - just like they did the underpass at Del Amo Blvd. last year. Right now the 183rd underpass is pretty narrow and angles off so that you can't see through it and to the other side.
It seems other underpasses will also get treatment, but I can't find related information on the department's website. I did find information about 183rd on the City of Cerritos website: http://www.cerritos.us/NEWS_INFO/new...bike_trail.php
And here's information about the completed phase 3: http://dpw.lacounty.gov/General/Cons..._id=RDC0015064.
