We’re Working For You!

August 12 Edition

Here’s an update on some recent OCBC activities:

  1. Notified CalTrans about a dangerous drainage grate under the El Toro undercrossing of the I-5 freeway. One picture (below) shows what happened to a rider’s wheel when the rider was trapped in the grate. The other photo illustrates the hazard. CalTrans has replaced the grate.
  2. Notified the City of Los Alamitos of a hazard on the bridge along Coyote Creek that is near Los Alamitos High School. The handrail was missing, exposing brackets that could have injured someone. The city has repaired the handrail.
