Ninth Street will be closed to through traffic at west Anaheim Street from 6 p.m. Jan. 31, through 6 a.m. Feb. 3. East to west traffic on Anaheim will not be affected.
The west Anaheim Street Improvement Project is expected to shift to its next phase during the week of Feb. 3, when lane closures on Anaheim move from the southern side to the northern side. There will still be two lanes open in each direction.
Businesses remain open and operating throughout the west Anaheim project, as they have done in earlier phases of the work.
West Anaheim Street is undergoing a 14-month improvement project from the 710 Freeway to 9th Street at the western city limit that started in September 2013. The City of Long Beach Harbor Department is overseeing the work to improve the street, which is the northern boundary of the Harbor district. In addition to roadway resurfacing, the project includes new sidewalks, bus stops, a median, access for the disabled and landscaping.
