California Avenue Sewer Pipeline Project Update – Temporary Road Closure Coming Soon
Construction along California Avenue at Pico Street to install the new gravity sewer line will commence on the early evening of April 5, 2019. The sewer construction work will occur around the clock until this section is completed to minimize impacts to businesses and improve safety for the public where conflicts with existing utilities and deep trenches make construction challenging. The road will be closed from Pico Street to north of Old Temescal Road on California Avenue. Detours around the work area in California Avenue are shown below.
A short section of California Avenue south of Pico Street will be closed to through traffic during this time with detours provided on Rimpau Avenue and Compton Avenue.
Alternate access to driveways and businesses will remain open during construction. Delays may occur along California Avenue and nearby streets due to this construction.
All businesses will be accessible during construction.
About the California Avenue Sewer Pipeline Project
The California Avenue Sewer Pipeline Project will provide additional flow capacity to carry sewage from new development and the planned decommissioning of the City's Water Reclamation Facility #3 (WRF3).
The project will construct approximately 8,600 linear feet of new sewer pipeline and associated manholes along California Avenue. The majority of the sewer will be installed using traditional open cut methods. Sewer construction at major street crossings will be constructed using trenchless technology, such as bore and jack methods which installs the pipe between two installation pits. Trenchless construction will minimize traffic disruption at high volume intersections at Old Temescal Road, Ontario Avenue and Chase Drive.
Please be advised that traffic delays are to be expected. Plan accordingly by taking alternate routes and allowing more travel time for known traffic delays. The City of Corona appreciates your patience and support while we make these important infrastructure improvements. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.
