The Fairview and Five Mile intersection officially opened to traffic at 7:20 a.m. on Friday, November 5, 2010. The reconstructed intersection will reduce congestion and delay for motorists with additional through lanes and right and left turn lanes at each approach.
The Five Mile Road and Fairview Avenue intersection was designed as part of the Five Mile Road from Franklin Road to Fairview Avenue project. ACHD has completed the final design for the entire project, however, the projects will be constructed separately.
Construction on the Five Mile Road and Fairview Avenue intersection began in early January 2010 and will be completed in November 2010. The Five Mile Road, Franklin Road (to the southern limits of the intersection) project is programmed for construction in 2013. Both projects are anticipated to be federally funded.
Intersection improvements include:
To improve longevity, the intersection will be constructed with concrete. Approximately 350 feet north of Fairview Avenue, the South Slough (Finch Lateral) crosses under the roadway. This section will be replaced and extended as part of this project. Several utility companies will be working to upgrade their facilities within the project area.
Landscaping that is removed will be replaced with sod except where right-of-way acquisition requires replacement or improvements.
