OCTA is reconstructing Lakeview Avenue as an overcrossing to allow vehicles to pass over the BNSF Railway tracks. As part of the project, Lakeview Avenue will be raised to separate car traffic from train traffic. The overpass will be built from approximately 200 feet south of Orchard Drive to 150 feet south of Eisenhower Circle.
During construction, Lakeview will be elevated and realigned to pass over the railroad tracks. A ramp connecting Lakeview to Orangethorpe will be constructed, and North Bubach Street in the northeast corner of the project area will be rerouted to connect to the ramp with a new signalized intersection. A new frontage road will be built in the southeast corner of the project for local business access. A new road also will be built in the southwest corner to connect the new frontage road to Lakeview.
Access to the Lakeview Business Park will be maintained during the project with a single entry/exit at Eisenhower circle, along with a new traffic signal.
Lakeview Avenue will be closed south of Orchard Drive and north of Eisenhower Circle until late 2016. Orangethorpe Avenue remains open to drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists during this phase.
The dedicated motorist detour for those traveling between the freeway to Yorba Linda is La Palma to Richfield to Buena Vista. Those needing to access local businesses and residences adjacent to the work area, please proceed with caution since local traffic lane configurations will be altered. Residential and business access will be maintained throughout this activity.
Pedestrians/cyclists can use Miraloma Avenue, Richfield Road to Orangethorpe Avenue, Highland Avenue to Orchard Drive to reconnect with Lakeview Avenue.
