Fixing Downtown's Major Streets
Over the course of the next few months, we will have repaved some of our major streets, with more scheduled in 2011. Here's a list of what to expect:
Long Beach Blvd Construction on Long Beach Blvd is almost complete. After 11 weeks of construction, our city crews have replaced the street from Ocean to 10th. We have also repaired damaged sidewalks, curbs and gutters and installed handicapped ramps. Construction should be complete in the next three weeks. The street from 10th to Anaheim will be constructed in 2011.
In October, construction will begin on Pacific Avenue between Ocean and 7th. The project should be complete before the end of November and will include constructing a new street, and replacing damaged curbs and gutters.
Next month, construction will start on replacing Daisy between Anaheim and Pacific Coast Highway in our industrial area. The street will be fully reconstructed and expand the great work that was done south of Anaheim on Daisy.
3rd Street & Broadway Bike Lane
You will also see construction soon along Broadway and 3rd to install the new Downtown Bike Lanes. These two new separated bike lanes will run East and West on 3rd and Broadway in Downtown. This construction will require many of the street sections to be replaced. We will be adding a serrated asphalt berm and other improvements.
In 2011, we are going to focus on two additional major Downtown streets:
- 7th Street from Orange to Long Beach Blvd.
- Pine Avenue from Ocean to 8th.
