The city of San Clemente announced on Wednesday, April 26, that the construction of the intersection improvements on Camino Del Rio have begun and are expected to finish in early July 2017, but there will be temporary closures at the intersections from May 3-31.
As construction of the roundabout, central islands and medians takes place, the intersections at Camino de Los Mares and Calle Sarmentoso will need to be closed periodically, a city press release stated.
The two intersections will be closed at different time periods to minimize inconvenience for the residents in the area during the detour periods. The intersections at Camino de Los Mares and Calle Sarmentoso will be closed at different time periods for approximately three weeks beginning on May 3 with a target detour and closure completion date of May 31. Access to homes in the communities adjacent to Camino Del Rio will be accessible at all times.
Following the construction of the roundabout, central islands and center medians, periodic closures are expected for landscaping installation and paving operations.
“The city asks that the public plan alternative routes during this period and adhere to the detour routes,” the release stated.
The improvements are part of the final pieces to the completion of the La Pata connection. As La Pata came online, the city planned to make the outlet that connects from Camino Del Rio more accessible to heavier traffic volumes and slow the traffic coming through the residential areas.
