The City recently completed the annual Sidewalk Repair for Handicap Accessibility I-135 project. The project involved localized removal and replacement of displaced sidewalk in the neighborhood bounded by Sepulveda Blvd, Western Ave, south City limit and Cabrillo Ave. Approximately 40,000 SF of the sidewalk was repaired and 67 handicap ramps were constructed to provide a continuous, unobstructed walking surface. Also, trees causing the sidewalk displacements were removed and replaced or root pruned to reconstruct the sidewalk at proper grade. The project was completed on budget and on schedule.
EMERGENCY STORM DRAIN REPAIR 2019
During recent storms, storm drain pipes failed in Paseo De Arena and Via El Chico causing damage to adjacent roadways. These corrugated metal pipe (CMP) storm drains were constructed in the 1950s and were severely deteriorated.

The City has replaced many of these old CMP storm drains in the past and will doing more replacements in the future. Below are pictures of the construction process.
