The City of Downey has began construction work on Firestone Boulevard between Brookshire Avenue and Lakewood Boulevard. The project will include the rehabilitation of the asphalt concrete pavement, the construction of raised landscaped median islands, and the installation of a new recycled water irrigation system and drought tolerant landscaping. Construction is scheduled to be completed in late September 2016.
Traffic lanes on Firestone Boulevard will be reduced at times in order to facilitate the construction work. Consequently, traffic delays should be expected. It is suggested that motorists use alternate routes while the project is under construction.
Please contact the City of Downey Department of Public Works, Engineering Division, at (562) 904-7110 for more information regarding this project.
