Informational Presentation: The Engineering Division prepared a presentation to discuss the details of this project.  If you haven’t seen it, you can view the presentation here.

Woodland Avenue - Webster Road to Glenwood Road

The road is now paved and residents will be able to park on the street by Wednesday June 6th.  Weather permitting, the contractor will begin placing concrete driveways towards the end of next week, and the driveways will remain closed for approximately one week while the concrete cures.
Garbage trucks will not be able to access the street on Monday June 4th, and this will be the last disruption to the pick-up schedule.  If desired, residents may drop off garbage and recycling receptacles at the corners of Webster or Glenwood before 7am and pick them up later in the day.  We recommend that you have address markings on all trash and recycling containers.

Bonnie View Drive - Lloyd Avenue to Northwood Boulevard

Work on this street is complete with the exception of restoration.

Yorba Linda Boulevard - Fairlawn Avenue to Springer Avenue

The water main work is complete on Yorba Linda Boulevard.  The contractor will be paving the outer half of Yorba Linda first (south side, cul-de-sac and west side), and pavement removals will begin on Monday June 4th.  Residents who will lose access to their driveways have been notified with a door hanger.

One lane of roadway will remain open on the inner half of Yorba Linda throughout construction of the outer half, but there will be construction equipment and trucks blocking the route throughout the work day.

Parkway Drive - Normandy Road to Woodward Avenue

The contractor is removing and replacing concrete at the intersection of Arlington and Parkway, as well as some small areas on the north side of Parkway between Arlington and Normandy.  Arlington will remain closed at Parkway for a week after the concrete is poured.  Parkway Drive will be open to traffic, with one lane open at Arlington. 

Linwood Avenue - Webster Road to Glenwood Road

No work to begin until school is out for the summer.

Delaware Avenue - E. Kenilworth Avenue to E. Harrison Avenue

No work yet; the contractor tentatively plans to begin the work in late June.

CAP1505 Concrete Street Repairs

Contractor: Galui Construction Company, Inc.

The contractor will be saw-cutting the project streets in the coming weeks.  Pavement removals and concrete pavement will not begin until mid-June.  

CAP1822 Non-Motorized Improvements

Contractor: Warren Contractors & Development, Inc.

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 tentatively scheduled to start on Monday June 18th.

Please note that construction schedules are tentative, and may change based on weather delays, subcontractors or substantial field modifications. These updates are based on the information currently available.
