Street Repair Update – June 16, 2017
This is the current timeline planned for Ladera Ranch street repairs, subject to change by OC Public Works. Please make sure to abide the signs placed on the streets and do not ask the workers to open the streets early or drive on the wet surfaces, this will damage the new surface. The less time that is given for the slurry to dry, the higher the likelihood that tracks will be left in the street. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cesar Lopez with OC Public Works at 714/474-1565. Please click the link to view the map and timeline.
