The contractor has paved the west side of Bonnie View which is currently closed to traffic, and has begun removing the pavement on the east side of the road. The contractor tentatively plans to place concrete on the east half of the road during the week of April 30th, likely towards the end of the week.

Yorba Linda Boulevard - Fairlawn Avenue to Springer Avenue

The contractor is scheduled to begin pavement removals starting on April 27th.  The contractor will remove half of the roadway pavement to allow for water main installation.  One lane of pavement will be left in place for local traffic while the water main is constructed.

Parkway Drive - Normandy Road to Woodward Avenue

The contractor has poured the south/east side of the roadway and this pavement will be closed to vehicles through the week of April 30th.  The contractor will begin pavement removals on the other half of the roadway later in the week.

The city will be installing signage and striping for a north-south bike route through the city.  The bike route begins at Washington Avenue and 10 Mile Road, extends north to Euclid Avenue, then east to N. Main Street, and finally north the city limits.  Where there are currently four lanes of traffic, the street will be reduced to a 3-lane roadway, with one lane of traffic in each direction, a center turn lane, and bicycle lanes on each side of the road.  This project is expected to begin in June.
