Overnight Closure Planned on California Avenue

California Avenue will be closed during nighttime hours between Easton Drive and Marella Way from Sunday, November 15 through Thursday, November 19. This closure is scheduled between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. each night. This closure is needed to remove falsework from the newly constructed bridge and erecting it for the second bridge, which will carry westbound traffic on the Centennial Corridor freeway.

Residents can detour around the work zone by using Oak Street to Stockdale Avenue if traveling west and Stockdale Avenue to Oak Street if traveling east.

Construction schedules may be changed without notice due to unforeseen circumstances. The Thomas Roads Improvement Program apologizes for any inconvenience this work may cause the traveling public.
