FLORENCE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT – Week of July 28, 2017

There are no closures scheduled the week of July 30. Crews have begun work to reconstruct the intersection of Fairford Avenue at Florence Avenue. Fairford Avenue will be reconstructed to meet the higher elevation of the new Florence Avenue Bridge.Fairford Avenue is closed to through traffic between Dollison Drive and Florence Avenue and will remain closed for reconstruction through early 2018. The closure area is shown in red on the map below. The detour route is highlighted in blue.

Crews have begun work to construct the new sound wall. Over the next few weeks, crews will continue drilling CIDH (cast in drilled hole) piles along northbound I-5. This operation will be conducted weekdays, between 7 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.  Crews have installed a chain link fence to close this area of the sidewalk from public access through the end of 2017. Beginning as early as Friday, July 28, crews will begin removing this portion of the sidewalk and the adjoining block wall, as they prepare to reconstruct the freeway sound wall at this location. 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.
