FLORENCE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT – Week of August 14, 2016

Beginning Monday, August 22, crews will resume pile driving activity along northbound I-5 at Florence Avenue. Work will be conducted weekdays, between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and will be ongoing intermittently for the next four to six weeks. Please be advised that this work may be loud and disruptive due to equipment noise, vibration and pounding related to pile driving activity.

Crews are continuing daytime work on the cul-de-sacs along Dollison Drive in the City of Downey. This work will take place between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., weekdays (Monday through Friday) for approximately the next two weeks. Residents in this area have been notified of this work.

Work on the drainage system on Longworth Avenue has been postponed a few weeks. Residents in the vicinity of this work will be notified once the new start date is scheduled. The work will include excavating asphalt to dig a trench, installing a new drainage pipe, backfilling the area and placing temporary asphalt. Residents’ driveways along the north side of Longworth Avenue may be temporarily impacted for one day while this work is completed; additional information will be provided once the work is scheduled.

Work is underway along Dollison Drive and Orr and Day Road in Downey and Santa Fe Springs, to construct cul-de-sacs and/or realigning streets adjacent to northbound and southbound I-5. To complete this work, construction fencing will be repositioned to allow adequate room for the work area.

Crews are working to form soundwalls along northbound and southbound I-5. Roadway excavation is underway behind k-rail and the construction fencing, along Mondon Avenue between Cecilia Street and Buell Street. Over the next few weeks crews will be pouring concrete for the new soundwall adjacent to southbound I-5. This work will be conducted weekdays (Monday through Friday) between 6:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. and will be ongoing for approximately the next two to three weeks.

Finally, work is ongoing on the Orr and Day railroad bridge, which runs perpendicular to I-5, underneath the freeway, south of Florence Avenue.
