Nearby sewer construction will impact traffic
OC SANITATION DISTRICT
The Orange County Sanitation District (OC San) will rehabilitate two parallel sewers on north and southbound Seal Beach and Los Alamitos boulevards, and along Katella Avenue, Oak Street and Lexington Drive in the cities of Seal Beach and Los Alamitos. Construction will continue through the winter 2022.
Work will begin on Lexington Drive with sewer line cleaning and chemical grouting to reinforce the pipe. This activity will be done at night, when sewer flows are low. Manhole rehabilitation work will follow. Work will consist of opening the manholes to insert a new liner to extend the life of the manhole. Most of the activity on Katella Avenue is occurring on eastbound travel lanes. Following this segment of work, construction will continue on Los Alamitos Boulevard.
Phase 2 will start at Oak Street toward Katella Avenue, and proceed east toward Los Alamitos Boulevard. Work will continue south on the southbound lanes of Los Alamitos Boulevard, concluding in Seal Beach.
