As part of an ongoing effort to repair public roads and improve pedestrian accessibility, the Cities of Placentia and Fullerton have jointly initiated the Placentia Avenue Reconstruction Project. Both Cities received Federal Arterial Pavement Management grant funds to reconstruct Placentia Avenue; a busy arterial roadway shared by both Cities. This is a priority project as the current roadway conditions require it to be completely rebuilt. The project limits are Placentia Avenue between Ruby Drive and Chapman Avenue in addition to enhancing accessibility and safety.
The scope of work for this project includes the removal and replacement of the existing asphalt pavement and portions of the road base, as well as reconstructing damaged sidewalks, driveways, curbs and gutters, and ramps.
Construction is slated to begin early June 2017, with an estimated completion date in late August 2017.
Since the start of the project on June 1, the Placentia Avenue pavement rehabilitation and improvements continue between Chapman Avenue and E. Ruby Drive. At the end of this week, crews have completed all concrete improvements (sidewalk, curb and gutter, and access ramps) and have removed existing asphalt pavement and base materials in the #2 (outside lane) of southbound Placentia Avenue.
During the week of June 26, crews will be placing new base materials and pavement in the #2 lane on southbound Placentia Avenue. After this work is completed, crews will then begin work to excavate and pave the #2 lane on northbound Placentia Avenue. Please note, in observance of the upcoming Independence Day holiday, no construction work is scheduled on Monday, July 3 and Tuesday, July 4.
Be advised, during construction activities, traffic may be reduced to one lane in either direction. Motorists should expect travel delays and use alternative routes when possible.
If you have additional questions, please call the construction helpline at (714) 422- 0010.
