The City of Long Beach will begin work on a long awaited street improvement project on Redondo Avenue between 2nd Street and Anaheim Street. The rehabilitation work includes replacing damaged curbs and gutters, driveways, alley entrances and sidewalks; trimming or shaving tree roots; reconstructing areas of deteriorated pavement; cold milling and resurfacing the pavement; and installing pavement markers, markings, traffic striping, signing and curb paint.
Businesses will stay open and Long Beach Transit will continue to operate during construction, which is expected to last until May. Sustainable elements include utilizing 122 tons of road base made from recycled concrete, rock, sand and asphalt; and including recycled waste ash in all concrete work to divert materials from our landfills.
Lane closures will be required during construction, and while the roads will stay open during working hours, motorists can expect some traffic delays. Therefore, motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes during construction.
The $2.2 million project is financed with Proposition C funds, and is expected to be completed in May.
