Two projects expected to jam roads Monday

October 01, 2011

Traffic is expected Monday on Pacific Coast Highway between Bayside Drive and Superior Avenue/Balboa Boulevard, officials warn.

Two construction projects are slated to begin Monday and officials are recommending residents use alternative routes, according to a news release from Newport Beach spokeswoman Tara Finnigan.

One of the projects, by the Orange County Sanitation District, requires trenching across PCH. One lane will be open in each direction between the entrance to Balboa Bay Club and Tustin Avenue as work is done on the district's Rocky Point Pump Station.


Construction is expected to wrap in three weeks with work being performed 24 hours a day. All heavy construction noise is restricted to 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The other project is by Southern California Edison to upgrade its facilities along PCH between Bayside Drive and Superior Avenue/Balboa Boulevard.

In the construction zones, only one lane in each direction will be open. Construction will happen between 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday until mid-November.

For more information about this project, call the Public Works Department at (949) 644-3311.
