Cerritos Avenue Gap Closure
Cannon provided civil engineering design, including plans, specifications, and estimates (PS&E), and survey services for this project located on Cerritos Avenue from Euclid Street to approximately 600 feet east of Euclid Street. The project consisted of constructing a five foot wide, ADA compliant sidewalk adjoining the back of curb, with no parkway along the north and south sides. The work also included the construction of block walls and fences that were relocated or reconstructed as part of the project. The new sidewalk eliminated the need for pedestrians to walk along the side of the road or on a dirt path.
Cerritos is designated as a four lane secondary arterial by the County’s Master Plan of Arterial Highways (MPAH) with average daily traffic of 9,400 vehicles per day. The sidewalk along Cerritos east of Euclid Street ended abruptly. The existing pathway consisted of an unpaved dirt path. The sudden sidewalk gap was a challenge for the drivers, pedestrians, bicyclists, and students of Loara High School located on the northwest corner of the Euclid and Cerritos. This sidewalk project provides a safer and better access for the school children and pedestrians in general.
