14-month closure ended on June 25
NORTH GATE OPEN
Leisure World’s North Gate was reopened at 8 a.m. on June 25 after more than a year of being closed. North Gate Road, the two-lane street leading to the gate, was closed for construction related to the $1.9 billion I-405 Improvement Project by the Orange County Transportation Authority. A new soundwall is planned for North Gate but construction dates have not yet been set.
North Gate Road had been closed since April 2020 when crews began building a sewer line underneath the 405 Freeway. Unforeseen soil conditions halted the job in December and forced a project redesign.
