Woodland Avenue - Webster Road to Glenwood Road

The road is now paved, and all driveways have been placed by the end of the day June 7th.  The city opted to keep the road closed during placement of the driveways for equipment access.  The contractor will have the road cleaned and open to residents by the end of the day Friday June 8th.  Driveway approaches will remain closed for a week while the concrete cures, but residents may park on the roadway where public parking is permitted. 

The remaining concrete at the intersection of Glenwood Road and handicap sidewalk ramps will be poured within the next couple weeks.

Bonnie View Drive - Lloyd Avenue to Northwood Boulevard

Work on this street is complete.

Yorba Linda Boulevard - Fairlawn Avenue to Springer Avenue

The contractor is preparing the outer half of Yorba Linda first (south side, cul-de-sac and west side) for paving.  Paving this half of the roadway is tentatively scheduled for Monday or Tuesday, the week of June 11th.

One lane of roadway will remain open on the inner half of Yorba Linda throughout construction of the outer half, but there will be construction equipment and trucks blocking the route throughout the work day.

Parkway Drive - Normandy Road to Woodward Avenue

The contractor will place concrete at Arlington Drive and in the remaining areas on the north side of Parkway between Arlington and Normandy during the week of June 11th.  Arlington will remain closed at Parkway for a week after the concrete is poured.  Parkway Drive will be open to traffic, with one lane open at Arlington.

The city will be installing signage and striping for a north-south bike route through the city.  The bike route begins at Washington Avenue and 10 Mile Road, extends north to Euclid Avenue, then east to N. Main Street, and finally north the city limits.  Where there are currently four lanes of traffic, the street will be reduced to a 3-lane roadway, with one lane of traffic in each direction, a center turn lane, and bicycle lanes on each side of the road.  This project is tentatively scheduled to start on Monday June 18th.
