At the June 20, 2017 City Council Meeting, City Council approved this year's residential repaving project in City Quadrant G2, which is bordered by Edinger, Newhope, Heil, and Euclid. The project includes the removal and replacement of existing asphalt, damaged sidewalks and gutters, and eight overgrown parkway trees. In addition to replacing existing infrastructure, the City will also install 77 ADA compliant curb ramps to provide individuals with disabilities unimpeded access to pedestrian routes in the public right-of-way.
Construction on this much needed project will begin in July 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by mid-September 2017. The goal is to have majority of the work completed before Labor Day to minimize the impact to school traffic in the fall. Working hours will be from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
While the project has been planned to minimize impacts to the traveling public, some construction inconveniences cannot be avoided. As with any major construction project, expect traffic delays and temporary street closures.
The City of Fountain Valley implemented its Residential Roadway Rehabilitation Program in 2008 to provide new pavement life to Fountain Valley's residential streets that had been slurried previously and had exceeded their full useful life. Based on the current schedule, the City anticipates to complete the rehabilitation of the remaining residential areas by 2021, after which the City will return to a preventative maintenance program.
