Medical Center to begin construction on Katella Avenue in Los Alamitos

At the regular meeting of the Los Alamitos City Council on Monday, March 17, Los Alamitos City Engineer David Hunt announced that construction of improvements on Katella Ave. in support of and paid by Los Alamitos Medical Center will begin on March 27.

Construction is scheduled to finish by June 6.

One lane in both directions — the lane closest to the median — will be closed.

Commuters are encourage to find alternate routes to avoid the construction.

The project consists of center median construction along a 700 foot section of Katella Ave. directly in front of the Los Alamitos Medical Center campus and Katella Manor Senior Living. It will include a new traffic signal at the Katella Ave. and Kaylor Ave. intersection and a reconfigured center median. The median will be lengthened to facilitate additional stacking within the left hand turn lanes that lead into the Medical Center’s new parking structure.

The Katella Avenue Improvement Project is being constructed to complement and support the expansion of the Los Alamitos Medical Center and construction is funded by the facility. Katella Avenue traffic will be impacted with the closure of one eastbound and one westbound lane around the clock. The City has allowed for extended daily construction hour to shorten construction duration while maintaining two westbound and eastbound traffic lanes.

When the two-lane closure starts, traffic delays and congestion are expected, especially during morning and evening commutes. Drivers are encouraged to use Cerritos Ave. as an alternative to Katella Ave.

Construction is anticipated to take 10 weeks. For more information, visit KatellaAve-ImprovementProject.com.

Questions about construction site (traffic barriers, flaggers, construction equipment, etc.) should be directed to the Construction Superintendent at 562-370-3458.

Questions about traffic issues should be directed to Public Works Director Steven Mendoza at the City of Los Alamitos 562-431-3538 x300 or smendoza@cityoflosalamitos.org.
