North Gate Road Update

North Gate Road is scheduled to close as early as Tuesday, July 5, for approximately three months to allow crews to install a new 18-inch sewer line underneath I-405.

The sewer line will connect to an existing line under Old Ranch Parkway, across the freeway. The work is part of the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) I-405 project to widen the freeway.

During construction, North Gate Road will be closed to all vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. People will be detoured to Golden Rain Road to enter and exit Leisure World.

Access to the Seal Beach Rehabilitation Center and other businesses along North Gate Road will be maintained throughout the closure.

In other construction news, work crews are nearly finished pile driving along North Gate.

That work will support a new sound wall.

The wall will range in height from 10 feet at the very east end to nearly 20 feet at the west end, according to OCTA.

The majority of the wall will be in the range of 16-18 feet high.

Since the freeway elevation is higher than the North Gate Road elevation, the wall height from the freeway side ranges from 10 feet to approximately 14 feet, with most of the wall being 14 feet high. For more information, sign up to receive alerts by visiting
