West Siders take note; Anaheim Street between Caspian and Canal Avenues will be closed to all traffic in both directions on both Saturday, October 19 and Sunday, October 20 as part of a 14-month-long improvement project.

Beginning at 7AM on October 19 and continuing through 5PM on Sunday, Anaheim will be closed as crews replace underground water lines. Westbound traffic will be forced to take 14th Street while eastbound traffic will be detoured to 11th Street.

According to officials from the Port of Long Beach, which is overseeing the project, other improvements include roadway resurfacing—which will cover Anaheim from the Los Angeles River to 9th Street—as well as improvements for sidewalks, bus stops, a new median, access for the disabled and landscaping.

The project is expected to be completed by November of 2014.
