EMERGENCY REPAIR ON STATE ROUTE 39 (BEACH BLVD); ALL LANES WILL BE OPEN FOR WEEKEND TRAFFIC
The California Department of Transportation is performing an emergency repair of a void caused by a collapsed culvert on southbound lanes of Beach Boulevard. The temporary repair of the void, which is located between Yorktown Avenue and Utica Avenue and has closed two lanes, will be completed by Friday afternoon, August 4. All six lanes of the road will be open for the weekend to ease beach traffic.
Permanent repairs of the collapsed culvert will begin on Monday, August 7, and will take an estimated three weeks. Work will begin on the northbound side of Beach Boulevard, with one lane remaining open to traffic on that side. Work will then shift to the southbound side, with one lane remaining open to traffic on that side. Construction is scheduled to take place between the hours of 6 a.m. and 3 p.m.
Caltrans appreciates the public’s patience while we perform this work. Detour signs will be posted to alert motorists of the lane closures and possible delays. It’s suggested that motorists seek alternative routes during construction.
