A detour is in order

Drivers might want to avoid driving downtown now that the city’s

Public Works Department has started a six-week repair project on

Third Street.

The roadway will be reconstructed from Olive to Verdugo avenues,

resulting in the closure of the street.

Outgoing Public Works Director Bruce Feng called Third Street “the

worst street” in the city.

Repair work was delayed until the new Cusumano Civic Plaza

building was completed on the old Police Department site on Olive

Avenue between Third Street and San Fernando Road.

The repair project was funded with $500,000 the Public Works

department received in federal Community Development Block Grant

dollars.
