Street Improvement Projects in the City of Hawaiian Gardens
NewsTranslate Larger Text PrintShare

The City of Hawaiian Gardens has been working hard these last couple of years to improve streets and pavements throughout the City and will continue to do so moving forward. There are two main projects set in motion for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017-18 and 2018-19. The first of the projects is the 2017-18 Street Improvement Project.

On February 13, 2018, the Hawaiian Gardens City Council authorized the Community Development Director to request competitive bids for the FY 2017-2018 Residential Streets Overlay Project. After receiving six bids for the project on March 14, 2018, All American Asphalt, of Corona, California, was chosen with a bid of $490,770. The project was funded by multiple special use funding sources (CDBG, MEasure M, MEasure R, SB-1, and General Fund) which totaled $711,215.

Originally, eight different streets were included in the project’s scope of work.

  1. Arline Avenue from Civic Center Drive to 221st Street
  2. Clarkdale Avenue from Civic Center Drive to 221st Street
  3. Elaine Avenue from Civic Center Drive to 221st Street
  4. 223rd Street from Norwalk Boulevard to Belshire Avenue
  5. Alley (E. of Norwalk Blvd) from 223rd Street to Brittain Street
  6. 215th Street from Elaine Avenue to 600 E. of Pioneer Blvd
  7. 226th Street from Norwalk Boulevard to Norwalk Channel
  8. 226th Street from Cortner Avenue to Wardham Avenue

After construction began, Cortner Avenue and Clarkdale Avenue were removed from the project list of streets due to various complications and concerns about proceeding with the improvements.

Construction began in May 2018 and concluded one month later in June 2018.

The second project is a part of the City’s Five-Year Pavement Management Plan. The Annual Pavement Rehabilitation Project (FY 2018-19) will improve the streets by overlaying Rubberized Asphalt Concrete to maintain the integrity and increase the life of the existing pavement. The preliminary estimate, based on the recommended street list, is $660,000. The City Council has appropriated $662,516 for Rehabilitation of various residential streets for the FY 2018-19 funded by multiple special use funding sources (CDBG, Measure M, and SB-1).

The scope of work for this project will include six streets.

  1. Clarkdale Avenue from Civic Center Drive to 221st Street
  2. Tilbury Street from Norwalk Boulevard to Horst Avenue
  3. 223rd Street from Juan Avenue to Pioneer Boulevard
  4. Belshire Avenue from 214th Street to 216th Street
  5. 213th Street from Norwalk Boulevard to Claretta Avenue
  6. 211th Street from Norwalk Boulevard to Claretta Avenue
