Construction work to repair and repave the intersection of Anaheim Street and Santa Fe Avenue in West Long Beach, Calif., is set to begin Wednesday, June 29. Led by the Port of Long Beach, the project will provide smoother driving for motorists and commercial traffic.

The project is expected to take about five months to complete and is likely to result in some traffic delays. There will be lane closures on Anaheim, but at least one lane in each direction will be kept open at all times. There will be intermittent full closures of Santa Fe. During the roadwork, electronic signs will be stationed to direct motorists to alternate routes.

The project is made possible by a cooperative agreement among the Port of Long Beach, the City of Long Beach and the Gateway Cities Council of Governments. The Gateway Cities Council obtained $487,500 in funding from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and the port is paying for the rest for the $800,000 construction project.
