The closure will take place outside of rush hour to minimize impact to commuters. This phase of the project should be completed by November 27. Please be aware that the ongoing construction activities in this area will commence at 5 a.m. and conclude at 7  p.m. Monday - Friday, only the closure will occur from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday work will take place 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The closure is required to complete shoring and excavation for the sewer pipe. The pipe extends into the center travel lanes which requires a closure to complete the work. This same closure will be required at a later date to install the pipe, and then remove the shoring plates.

Please view NOTIFICATIONS for additional work taking place throughout the project alignment.


Project Description: 
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 late summer 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 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.
