Alley, sewer and waterline work north of Seal Beach's Ocean Avenue—between Main and Sixth streets—will affect residents from next February until sometime in summer.
In order to keep the impact to a minimum, the city says, work will be done a block at a time. It's expected to take two months per block.
During each block’s construction window, neither vehicles nor pedestrians will have access to the alley. Trash pickup will not be affected.
Free parking will be provided in the Eighth Street beach parking lot for those directly affected in that block.
Each household will be issued two residential and one visitor parking permits for the period of construction.
The construction work will be done by to Charles King Co., which in December was awarded the contract by the City Council.
A public meeting set for Jan. 10, 2013, at 6 p.m. will address the impacts. It's at City Hall in the council chambers. Council member Ellery Deaton will attend and will be available to take questions. In the meantime, those with questions can contact project manager Cesar Rangel at (562) 431-2527, Ext. 1328, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
