Long Beach street repair
Beginning November 22 at 7:00 am, 6th and 7th Streets will allow two-way traffic in the area between Alamitos and Atlantic Avenues, as the City of Long Beach reaches a milestone in the process to improve a dangerous intersection and build a new park in Downtown Long Beach.
The City of Long Beach is making major repairs and improvements to the popular Junipero Avenue Beach Parking Lot, south of Ocean Boulevard.
“This important project will make it even more convenient for people to come and enjoy our beautiful coastline, which is one of our greatest resources,” said Mayor Robert Garcia.
On Monday, May 12, the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD) will begin construction on a major water pipeline that runs underneath West Bixby Road in the Los Cerritos neighborhood. The project will affect traffic along Bixby Road and several connecting streets for approximately three months.
West Anaheim Street will close in both directions on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23-24, in West Long Beach as crews continue a roadway improvement project on the thoroughfare.
The closure will start at 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Nov.
The City of Long Beach will begin work this week on a pavement rehabilitation project along 10th Street between Redondo and Ximeno avenues.
“This project is yet another example of how Long Beach is investing in its infrastructure, which helps Long Beach’s businesses and residents in the long run,” Mayor Bob Foster said.
Due to adverse weather conditions forecast for this weekend, the planned closure for repaving of eastbound Ocean Boulevard from the I-710 connectors to the L.A. River November 16-19 has been postponed. Traffic on the Gerald Desmond Bridge and the ramps to and from Pico Avenue will not be diverted.
Work is entering the final phase on a project to alleviate congestion at the intersection of southbound Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) at Second Street. The project will add a second left turn lane and provide room for right turns onto Second Street without blocking through-traffic, and add sidewalk along PCH.
