There will be closures on Santa Ana Boulevard between French Street and Minter Street and also on 6th Street between French Street and Mortimer Street for OC Streetcar crews to pour concrete around the rail on Thursday, April 27, Monday, May 1, and Wednesday, May 3, 2023. The closures will be in place from 9 p.m. to the next day morning for each day.
Please be aware crews will begin activities as early as 9 p.m. and work through the night to the next morning. This work requires lighting, heavy machinery and may be noisy.
Please follow detour signage. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.
Concrete pours need to start in the night/early morning as the steel rails expand with rising temperatures. Pouring concrete around the rail while the temperatures are lower allows the concrete to dry before the temperatures rise, keeping the rail in place and preventing it from expanding.
The schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather or unforeseen operational issues. Work activities are weather and site condition dependent. If a rain event occurs on the anticipated start date, the construction activity will be delayed until the weather clears. This work may be loud. Follow OC Streetcar on social media for updates.
