A yet-to-be-disclosed food manufacturer is relocating from the South Bay area of Los Angeles to La Mirada after purchasing the industrial property at 16200 Trojan Way for $17.5 million. Cha-ching!

The Valley View Avenue Interchange Project is 26% complete. Within the next two weeks the contractor will conduct a full freeway closure of northbound I-5 between Beach Blvd. and Valley View Ave. to re-stripe lanes. Valley View Avenue will be elevated to meet with the new Valley View Avenue Bridge. In turn, N. Firestone Boulevard will be elevated to meet Valley View Avenue. In preparation for these modifications, N. Firestone Blvd. will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Gateway Drive and Valley View Avenue by late March. Trucks over 2,500 lbs. and / or more than 25 feet long will not be permitted to drive on this portion of N. Firestone.

By late March, the existing N. Firestone Boulevard will close for more than one year between Knott Avenue and Trojan Way in La Mirada for demolition to prepare for the widening of I-5 and to allow demolition and reconstruction of the bridge over Coyote Creek. N. Firestone Boulevard will be rebuilt to the east.
