Repairs for Major West Long Beach Intersection
Upgrades set for West Anaheim Street and Santa Fe Avenue
June 20, 2011
Construction work to repair and repave the intersection of West Anaheim Street and Santa Fe Avenue in West Long Beach is set to begin Wednesday, June 29, 2011.
Led by the Port of Long Beach, the project will provide smoother driving for motorists. The work is expected to take about five months to complete. See the information in Spanish.
The project will likely result in some traffic delays. There will be lane closures on West Anaheim, but at least one lane in each direction will be kept open at all times. There will be intermittent full closures of Santa Fe.
During the roadwork, electronic signs will be stationed to direct motorists to alternate routes.
The project is made possible by a cooperative agreement among the Port of Long Beach, the City of Long Beach and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments. The Gateway Cities Council obtained $487,500 in funding from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the Port is paying for the rest for the $800,000 construction project.
The Port of Long Beach is committed to keeping Harbor District roadways maintained in good condition and committed to minimizing the impacts of construction on motorists.
