The city is currently constructing a new storm drain system in the vicinity of Electric Avenue between Seal Beach Boulevard and 14th Street. This new storm drain system will help alleviate some drainage concerns for the eastern portion of Old Town Seal Beach. This project began in September and is expected to continue into the spring.
The second phase of the project, which included shutting down Seal Beach Boulevard south of PCH is finishing up and the third step in the construction is set to begin.
Seal Beach Boulevard just north of Electric Avenue has been closed for the past six weeks, but was reopened on Friday, Jan. 28.
Beginning in February, the construction will progress from Seal Beach Boulevard down the north side of Electric Avenue towards 14th Street. While Seal Beach Boulevard has been reopened to traffic, Electric Avenue will be closed to traffic during this phase of construction.
During this closure, detour signs will be posted for traffic to use alternate routes.
