Public Works Projects

Posted on September 26, 2022 at 3:45 PM by Meghan Wishner

The Public Works Department is busy and has several projects in the works. Here are a few projects that are currently in progress.

Residential Roadway Rehabilitation Project (City Quadrant D3)

City Quadrant D3 is bounded by Heil Avenue, Brookhurst Street, Warner Avenue, and Bushard Street. The project provides rehabilitation and resurfacing of City Quadrant D3 and also includes improvements to deficient curb and gutter and ADA compliance on sidewalks and curb ramps. The project is scheduled to begin in mid-October and is anticipated to be completed by late December.

Arterial Street Rehabilitation and Resurfacing Project - Heil Avenue from Euclid Street to Harbor Blvd and Ward Street from Edinger Avenue to North City Limits

This project provides rehabilitation and resurfacing of Heil Avenue from Euclid Street to Harbor Blvd and Ward Street from Edinger Avenue to North City Limits and will also include concrete improvements (i.e. sidewalk and curb ramp improvements to meet ADA compliance along all pedestrian pathways in this area and curb and gutter improvements to improve drainage). This project is anticipated to begin in early October with plans to be completed by the end of December

Magnolia Avenue/Warner Avenue Sewer Project

The structural work for the sewer project on Magnolia Avenue/Warner Avenue is complete. The remaining work is the sewer liner which will be complete by the end of October.

Sports Park Field Restoration after Multiple Events

After each of the below events, the Public Works crew and Merchants, the City’s landscape vendor, restored the sod to prepare for sporting events, future events, and sports leagues:

  • Crawfish Festival (May 2022)
  • SummerFest (June 2022)
  • BBQ Fest (August 2022)
  • LobsterFest (September 2022)

HSIP Federally Funded Traffic Signal Improvement Project at Eight (8) Locations

These traffic signal improvements will enhance safety with improvements to driver visibility, and sight distance, and reduce traffic delays. This project is planned to be completed by April of 2023.

 Frontier Fiber Optic Construction in Progress

Staff met with Frontier to discuss progress and restoration. They are working internally to identify their schedule. They are not prepared/ready to provide a schedule. Frontier Fiber Optic is in the City in various locations. You may see their subcontractor trucks (i.e. EFI Engineering, Line Works Construction, and Galvan Underground Engineering). Frontier will provide an update at the October 4, 2022, Council Meeting

SiFi Fiber Optic Project

Staff met with SiFi for a kick-off meeting for engineering and permit requirements. SiFi and staff are working together to identify 2 “hut” locations. Staff is trying to identify locations with the least impact on the community. There was a separate meeting with SiFi for SmartCity discussion to provide better WiFi connections at the Sports Park. We are very excited to discuss further whether entering into a SmartCity agreement benefits the community

Rehabilitation of Well 10

Work for Well 10 began September 21, 2022. This will include a gyroscopic survey and the results will be reviewed afterward.

Project No. GT229, Residential Roadway Rehabilitation Project (City Quadrant D3) 

The City has scheduled a residential roadway rehabilitation project for City Quadrant D3. The project consists of applying a slurry seal coat on some streets and placing a 2 ½” thick asphalt cap on other streets. The street improvements are necessary to maintain a smooth riding surface after years of weathering and continual use, replace damaged sidewalks and curb & gutter, install ADA curb ramps, and remove/replace parkway trees at warranted locations.

Construction is scheduled to begin Monday, October 10, 2022, and is expected to be completed by Friday, December 2, 2022, subject to weather delays and other unforeseen conditions. Working hours will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

While the project has been planned to minimize impacts on the traveling public, some construction inconveniences cannot be avoided. As with any major construction project, expect traffic delays and temporary street closures. Your streets may be closed for up to 4 hours during construction; however, access to residences will be maintained. Please refer to the “No Parking” signs, which will be posted 72 hours prior to beginning work. The City asks for your cooperation and consideration while construction is underway. Please drive carefully through the construction zones.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation during the construction of this important project. Should you have any questions and/or concerns, please call the Public Works Department at (714) 593-4433.
