Earlier this year the City began the Capital Improvement Program project for the rehabilitation of the median and landscape on Irvine Boulevard, First Street and Newport Avenue. The project is constructed in stages, and the contractor recently finished Irvine Boulevard between Old Irvine Boulevard and Prospect Avenue.
As you may have already experienced they are currently working on the section of Irvine Boulevard between SR-55 and Prospect Avenue and will next move on to the First Street median the week of July 23rd.
The Public Works Department encourages drivers to use alternate routes as the work will require lane closures. The anticipated project completion of all 3 streets is the end of 2018.
