Anaheim Public Utilities - Underground Conversion - Lincoln/Rio Vista

Lincoln Rio Vista

The undergrounding project on Lincoln Avenue, crossing the 57 freeway to Rio Vista Street, and on Rio Vista Street, from Lincoln Avenue to La Palma Avenue, began construction in July 2016. City’s Contractor has completed installing new underground electrical cables and apparatuses. The project was closely coordinated with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for tunneling under the 57 and 91 Freeways to eliminate overhead freeway crossings for improved electric reliability which was completed as of April 2018. Electrical undergrounding is scheduled to be completed by April 2019 with cable TV, phone and other communication companies completing their undergrounding within 12-18 months, thereafter. Final street paving is being coordinated with Public Works Department and Rio Vista Elementary School. Below is the anticipated final street paving schedule:

  • March 28, 2019 – March 29, 2019: La Palma Avenue from 91 Freeway to east of Blue Gum Street; and Blue Gum Street from north of La Palma Avenue to La Mesa Street.
  • April 15, 2019 – April 19, 2019 (Rio Vista Elementary School’s Spring Break schedule): Frontera Street from Chantilly Street to east of Rio Vista Street; and Rio Vista Street from Frontera Street to south of Lincoln Avenue.
  • April 22, 2019 – April 23, 2019: Lincoln Avenue from Sunkist Street to east of Rio Vista Street.
