Bundy Canyon Rd. Improvement Project (Segment 1), CIP 026-1

Updated: 6/16/2022

Last week, the contractor began grading activities on the east end of the project in preparation for roadway paving. Grading is expected to continue this week.

The contractor received approval from outside agencies to complete the replacement of the waterline at Sellers Rd. The contractor is now working with Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) to schedule a temporary water shut-off so that the waterline can be replaced. After replacement of the waterline, the storm drain construction at Sellers Rd. will recommence. Remaining work at Sellers Rd. includes the replacement of a conflicting underground waterline, completion of the storm drain connection, paving improvements, concrete improvements, and a new traffic signal. Detour signs will remain in place to direct drivers around the closure until the road is reopened.

Please use caution when driving through the construction area, and please follow all traffic control signs and direction from project traffic control personnel.

Please expect delays when driving through the construction area. Construction Zone speed limits are strictly enforced.
