Placentia Avenue Reconstruction Project
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.


As part of the Placentia Avenue Reconstruction Project, crews will be performing work during the weekend at the intersections of Placentia/Nutwood and Placentia/Chapman. This improvement work will require closures, which may impact motorists and cause travel delays. Please plan extra time when traveling through the project area.


Friday, July 28 and Saturday, July 29, 8 a.m. to midnight

Work is scheduled at the Placentia/Nutwood intersection. Closures include:
• No left turn lane from northbound Placentia Ave. onto westbound Nutwood Ave.
• No thru traffic from southbound Placentia Ave.; all motorists will turn right onto Nutwood Ave.

Friday, Aug. 4 and Saturday, Aug. 5, 8 a.m. to midnight

Work is scheduled at the Placentia/Chapman intersection. The closure includes:
• No left turn lane from southbound Placentia Ave. onto eastbound Chapman Ave.


During closures at Placentia/Nutwood, motorists traveling northbound on Placentia Ave. should use Yorba Linda Blvd. for freeway access. Motorists traveling southbound on Placentia Ave. should use Nutwood Ave., to Commonwealth Ave., to Chapman Ave. for access to Placentia Ave. During the closure at Placentia/Chapman, motorists should use Center St., to Murray St., for access to Chapman Ave.

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
