New medians are being installed on First Street, Irvine Boulevard, and Newport Avenue. After years of overlays and slurry seals, the curb heights have diminished. Past maintenance was needed to address the constant deterioration of the asphalt as a result of over spray from the irrigation in the median. As part of the project, drought tolerant plants and drip irrigation are being installed. This will extend the life of the asphalt and comply with new State regulations that prohibit spray irrigation of turf in street medians. The City received a grant from the Orange County Transportation Authority for this project as part of their program to reduce the environmental impacts of contaminated runoff.
