FLORENCE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT – Week of Aug 20, 2017

Please note, all nighttime closures scheduled on Florence Avenue at Orr and Day Road, Tuesday night, Aug. 22 through Thursday night, Aug. 24 have been cancelled. 

Tuesday night, Aug. 22 through Thursday night, Aug. 24 crews will be performing night work between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. on Florence Avenue at Orr and Day Road. The contractor will be potholing to locate underground utilities. This work will require nightly closures on Florence Avenue for all eastbound traffic, between Studebaker Road and Orr and Day Road; westbound traffic on Florence Avenue will remain open. In addition, there will be no northbound access to Orr and Day Road from Florence Avenue. Please be advised, this work may cause intermittent noise disruption, but is not expected to generate sustained loud construction activity.

Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes if possible, as shown on the map below.

Crews have begun work to construct the new sound wall along the northbound I-5 Florence Avenue on-ramp, adjacent to Longworth Avenue. Over the next three weeks, crews will continue drilling CIDH (cast in drilled hole) piles along northbound I-5. This operation will be conducted weekdays, between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

A portion of the sidewalk on Longworth Avenue, adjacent to the northbound I-5, has been closed to accommodate sound wall reconstruction. A chain link fence has been installed to close this area of the sidewalk from public access through the end of 2017. Crews have begun removing this portion of the sidewalk and the adjoining block wall, as they prepare to reconstruct the freeway sound wall at this location. This work  is currently on hold and will resume soon. Once work resumes, sidewalk/block wall removal work will take place weekdays between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and may be intermittently loud and disruptive due to concrete removal activities. The sidewalk will be restored once sound wall construction is complete.
