Nighttime Final Paving of Sixth Street begins August 24
As part of the Sixth Street Waterline Extension Project, the City’s contractor will perform final repaving work in the following areas:
- Eastbound direction of travel on Sixth Street from East Grand Boulevard to Rimpau Avenue,
- a portion of the intersection of Sixth Street and East Grand Boulevard in the westbound direction of travel,
- approximately 80 feet of the north side of Sixth Street west of East Grand Boulevard, and
- the south half of the intersection at Sixth Street and Rimpau Avenue.
This work represents the final significant construction effort necessary to complete the waterline construction project. Following paving, additional work, such as striping, and cleanup will be required.
Saturday, August 24 from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
East Sixth Street from East Grand Boulevard to Rimpau Avenue
The work will include grinding and removing the existing asphalt pavement surface and placing a new layer of asphalt pavement in the work areas. The contractor will use grinding and paving equipment to remove and install asphalt, and trucks to haul old asphalt from the site and to deliver new asphalt. Please expect noise from the construction equipment and traffic.
During this work, there will be limited access to the intersection at East Sixth Street and East Grand Boulevard. Eastbound and westbound Sixth Street will be reduced to one lane in each direction and shifted to the north side of the street. Access to Rimpau Avenue will also be limited with posted detours around the partial closures. If possible, we encourage everyone to avoid traveling through this area during the hours of this repaving work.

Please be advised that traffic delays are to be expected. Plan accordingly by taking alternate routes to avoid driving through the construction zone and allowing more travel time for anticipated traffic delays. The City of Corona appreciates your patience and support while we make these important infrastructure improvements. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.
