Closure Notice: Side Street Access to Firestone Blvd. in Norwalk

If you live north of Firestone Boulevard between Shoemaker Avenue and Carmenita Road, there are some closures coming up next week we’d like you to know about. Access to and from North Firestone Boulevard will be blocked at Dinard Avenue, Maryton Avenue, Fidel Avenue, Painter Avenue and Gracebee Avenue. (See detour map.) The closures will begin Monday, February 6, and run through August 2012. Caltrans staff delivered flyers to homes in the impacted area yesterday to inform residents about the closures.

Access to Firestone will be blocked to allow crews to realign the street and make room for the I-5 widening project now underway. The project is building one new carpool lane and one new general purpose lane in each direction, reconstructing the Carmenita Road bridge as a 10-lane concrete structure with new ramps, and realigning and upgrading frontage roads.
