Seal Beach Construction Starts Week of April 13

Post Date:04/10/2020 12:00 PM


As a critical infrastructure, OCSD's service is deemed essential and imperative during the response to the COVID-19 public health emergency. OCSD will continue to operate for both the public health and safety of Orange County and the State of California. 


Construction begins the week of April 13 on the OCSD Westminster Blvd. Sewer Project starting in the City of Seal Beach.


Starting Location 

Westminster Blvd. between Seal Beach Blvd. and Bolsa Chica Rd. in the City of Seal Beach.  It is approximately a 2-mile stretch of construction activity before work commences in the City of Westminster starting at Bolsa Chica Rd.

3-62 Starting Location


The first portion of work along Westminster Blvd. between Seal Beach Blvd. and Bolsa Chica Rd. will start the week of April 13, 2020, beginning with paving activities. 

Scheduled work hours are Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. (for paving activities)

*Dates and times are subject to change due to operational factors or inclement weather.

What to Expect

Paving activities will take place for the first few weeks along both westbound and eastbound Westminster Blvd., one direction will be worked on at a time.  This will temporarily close the respective #2 lane and bicycle lane during work hours.

Several weeks later, after paving activities along Westminster Blvd., the public will begin to notice the installation of k-rail concrete barriers.  The k-rail will create a workspace area in the median, as most activity for the construction of two sewer pipelines will be within the k-railed median, while still allowing 2 travel lanes in each direction.

Project Description:

The project will replace and reconstruct nearly three miles of two parallel 36-inch diameter sewer pipelines on Westminster Boulevard between Seal Beach Boulevard and Rancho Road/Hammon Place in the cities of Seal Beach and Westminster.

This project is within the Western Regional service area.
