OC Bridges Moves Forward with Raymond Avenue Construction

As part of OC Bridges, Raymond Avenue will be closed for approximately 80 days as OCTA and the City of Fullerton construct an undercrossing to separate vehicle traffic from train traffic.

The closure is needed to allow crews to safely complete wall construction, relocate utilities, and pave the roadway. The roadway will be lowered between Santa Fe Avenue to the north and Ash Avenue to the south. When completed, the project will move cars smoothly under the railroad tracks, enhancing safety and boosting mobility. During construction, business and residential access will be maintained.

A detour route will be in place using Orangethorpe, Acacia, and Commonwealth Avenues to reconnect with Raymond Avenue.

OC Bridges overcrossings and undercrossings provide a faster, safer traveling experience for those driving along the Orangethorpe Corridor in Anaheim, Fullerton, and Placentia. Five of seven projects have been completed. The remaining two crossings at Raymond Avenue and State College are expected to be finished in 2018. OC Bridges is partially funded by Measure M, Orange County’s half-cent sales tax for transportation improvements.  To learn more about OC Bridges, click here.
