|Road Closure: Southbound Lanes on Imperial Highway to Close for up to Four Months|
ANAHEIM, CA - (February 3, 2009) - Beginning Friday, Feb. 13, 2009, the Orange County Transit Authority has announced, the southbound lanes along Imperial Highway between Orangethorpe and La Palma avenues will be closed to traffic for up to four months.
Motorists are advised to follow detour signs in order to avoid traffic congestion. As an alternate route, drivers can take Kellogg or Fairmont avenues to La Palma Avenue and continue east or west to access Imperial Highway or Lakeview Avenue
This closure will allow for crews to complete construction on the bridge over the train tracks at the Imperial Highway/Orangethorpe Avenue/Esperanza Road intersection. When the project is completed, both northbound and southbound lanes will be moved to the newly constructed bridge.
This new bridge will enhance safety by improving pedestrian accessibility, alleviate traffic congestion and eliminate wait time for motorists caused by passing trains. The project is scheduled to be completed in late 2010.
