FLORENCE AVENUE INTERCHANGE PROJECT – Week of July 9, 2017

Wednesday, July 12 through Friday, July 14, crews will perform paving work on the cul-de-sacs at Quinn Street, Muller Street and Buell Street, as well as along Cecilia Street and Lakeland Road, adjacent to the I-5 freeway. Temporary parking restrictions will be in place and driveway access may be affected while this work is completed. The contractor will place “No Parking” signs in advance of this work. Paving work will take place during daytime shifts, Wednesday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.

On Monday, July 17, crews will begin work to reconstruct the intersection of Fairford Avenue at Florence Avenue. Fairford Avenue must be reconstructed to meet the higher elevation of the new Florence Avenue Bridge. Crews will close Fairford Avenue to through traffic between Dollison Drive and Florence Avenue, beginning at 5 a.m. Monday, July 17. Fairford Avenue will remain closed for reconstruction through early 2018. Fairford Avenue will be closed between Dollison Drive and Florence Avenue; the closure area is shown in red on the map below. The detour route is highlighted in blue.

Fence installation, vegetation removal and sound wall removal along the northbound I-5 Florence Avenue on-ramp, adjacent to Longworth Avenue, will continue next week. Once the sound wall removal operation is completed, crews will immediately begin work to construct the new sound wall. A privacy fence has been installed along Longworth Avenue, adjacent to northbound I-5 freeway. This work will be conducted weekdays, between 7 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Please be advised, this work may be loud and disruptive due to concrete demolition and removal, equipment noise, sound wall construction activities and truck back-up alarms.

Crews have begun 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., and will be ongoing for approximately six to eight weeks.
