The first phases of Pioneer Boulevard’s improvement are nearing completion, with but a few major components left.
So far, the traffic lanes have been reduced and the sidewalks widened to slow down vehicles and invite pedestrians to Artesia’s downtown. Decorative street lights, planters, and trees have been installed to create an inviting and pleasing experience for anyone walking down Pioneer Boulevard. This week, the medians are being poured to create center medians, a safety feature for pedestrians.
These key phases of Artesia’s downtown improvements will provide long-term benefits to residents, businesses, and visitors. Construction on occasion may call for brief closures to through traffic.
“The City continues to recommend that drivers seek alternate routes for commuting purposes. The 605 freeway, Gridley Road, and Norwalk Blvd. are all excellent routes to consider,” said Public Works Director Chuck Burkhardt. “Brief occasional street closures are anticipated over the next few weeks as construction draws to a close.”
