North Gate Road will be closed until late October
The North Gate Road closure that was originally anticipated to end this month will be extended through October and possibly longer, according to the Orange County Transporation Authority (OCTA).
The road closed July 5 to allow crews to install a new 18-inch sewer line underneath I-405. The sewer line will connect to an existing sewer line under Old Ranch Parkway, across the freeway.
North Gate Road is off limits to all vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. Access to the Seal Beach Rehabilitation Center and other businesses along North Gate Road remains open.
The reopening of the road was delayed last week due to unforeseen site conditions.
In other construction:
• College Park West Crews are relocating several utilities to continue widening the drainage channel adjacent to homes in College Park West. Utility line relocation is ongoing from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. weekdays. Block wall installation is anticipated to begin in the fall.
• SB Off-Ramp Closed The southbound I-405 offramp to Seal Beach Boulevard is closed until mid-October as part of project improvements. The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather.
OCTA reports that the entire I-405 Improvement Project is approximately 85% complete, with work scheduled to wrap up by the end of next year.
In cooperation with Caltrans, OCTA is widening the San Diego Freeway (I-405) between SR-73 and I-605.
The project is improving 16 miles of freeway.
