Sewer Installation on State College Blvd.
Construction of the sewer line is progressing north along State College Blvd. and you may notice an increase in crews and activities at various locations. Take a look at the progress map to view our work area and proposed schedule. A few updates for the next few weeks are below:
Howell Ave. to Ball Rd.
Sewer installation continues and is expected to be complete by the end of May. Regular work hours are Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. (Work hours in the area from Howell to Cerritos will vary based on Angel games so as not to interfere with event traffic).
Howell Avenue Intersection
Intermittent left hand turns restrictions will occur as sewer installation is completed. Right hand turns will be allowed. U-turns can be made at Cerritos Ave. and Katella Ave. to continue route. South and north bound traffic will be open on State College Blvd. though lanes will be reduced in each direction.
Ball Rd. to Courtney Ave.
Installation of the sewer pipe at the intersection of Ball Rd. is currently ongoing and should be completed in May. The pipe is being tunneled underneath the street to avoid digging up the intersection. Two pits are required (north and south of the intersection) to insert and remove the tunneling machine, and to insert the new pipe.
As we approach the schools and parks in the area, we want to remind everyone to allow extra time to arrive at your destination and to drive extra carefully in the construction zones. The northbound bus stop will be relocated, please see posted alerts at bus stops.
Nightwork: To reduce traffic impacts and expedite some of the construction, night work will be taking place over the next several weeks. Work hours are 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Week of April 29th
Ball Rd. Intersection
Nightwork at the intersection of Ball Rd. from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. for approximately two months to install a City water line. Temporary turn restrictions and lane reductions will be in effect, but the intersection will remain open.
City of Anaheim’s water line infrastructure is being simultaneously upgraded with construction of the new sewer line in order to minimize impacts to the community.
Misc. Night Work
There is still work to be done at the intersection of Orangewood Ave. and State College Blvd. that will occur while the Angels are out of town (or potentially at the end of the baseball season). Specific dates will be shared as we have more details and the work progresses.
We understand construction can be an inconvenience, we apologize in advance and appreciate your patience as we work to improve our infrastructure.
*Dates are subject to change due to operational factors or inclement weather.
The project is replacing four miles of sewer along State College Boulevard from the SR-91 to Orangewood Avenue in the City of Anaheim. Construction began in summer 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in late 2020. Once the project is complete, eight million gallons of wastewater will be diverted to OCSD’s Plant No. 1 in Fountain Valley for treatment before being send to the Groundwater Replenishment System. This is Phase B of a two-phase project; Phase A was completed in 2017 and took place from Yorba Linda Blvd. to SR-91 in the City of Fullerton.
