I-710 Long Life Pavement Project

THE PROJECT
This is a Long Life Asphalt Concrete (LLAC) Pavement Rehabilitation project that will involve nine miles of the Long Beach Freeway (I-710) in the cities of Long Beach, Carson, Compton, Paramount, Lynwood and South Gate at various locations on both the northbound and southbound directions. The work will include pavement replacement, shoulder reconstruction, replacement of the metal median barrier guardrail with concrete barriers, widening the Atlantic Boulevard undercrossing and widening southbound I-710 at the Compton Creek bridge. A soundwall will be constructed at the Atlantic Boulevard undercrossing on southbound I-710. Fiber optic lines will be installed underneath the pavement at ½ mile intervals for traffic data collection and traffic management. An additional feature on this major corridor will include the construction of “maintenance pulloutsâ€Â along the route to enhance the safety of maintenance crews. “Maintenance pulloutsâ€Â are selected areas to provide a safe space for maintenance vehicles to stop in to work and safely return to mainline traffic flow.
SUMMARY
This is the second phase of the I-710 Rehabilitation project, a continuation of the Long Life Pavement Strategy from I-405 to Firestone Boulevard. The first phase completed in December 2004 and included I-710 from Pacific Coast Highway (State Route 1) to the San Diego Freeway (I-405). The third and final phase, tentatively scheduled to begin spring 2012, will continue this pavement strategy to the Santa Monica Freeway (I-10).
BENEFITS
The roadway will be rehabilitated with long life pavement that will result in less maintenance work in the future.
COST
$164.5 million
STATUS
SCHEDULE
Construction began summer 2007. Anticipated completion is summer 2012
