Installation of 16-foot barrier fence

The Ascon Landfill Site project is preparing to install a 16-foot high barrier fence along two residential facing public streets, Magnolia Street and Hamilton Avenue. Construction is scheduled to begin in mid to late July 2019 and continues through late August 2019. This work is being done to provide an additional shield for the community during the excavation phase of the final cleanup of the landfill.

INITIAL ACTIVITY:

Expected 1 to 2 weeks duration

This work will include:

  • Brush and vegetation clearing
  • Removal of barbed wire from top of existing fence
  • Tree removal in the southeast zone (near Shopoff tank farm property)
  • Removal of existing fence and placement of temporary fence panels until the barrier fence is installed
  • Ground leveling along the fence line
  • Imported gravel placed along fence line as new fence base

Work hours: 7am to 6pm

You can expect to see:

  • Temporary lane closures on Magnolia and Hamilton streets
  • Crews clearing vegetation and trees
  • Equipment leveling earth along the fence line
  • Trucks depositing gravel

Mitigation: There will be dust and odor control during this work. Air quality monitoring continues at the Ascon site 24-hours daily.

INSTALLATION:

Expected 2 to 3 weeks duration

Installation of the fence will include:

  • Crane and other large equipment
  • Temporary lane closures
  • Placement of a heavy concrete base to anchor the tall fence panels, which are a vinyl cloth material.

Where: Installation begins along Hamilton Avenue, proceeding to Magnolia Street. The barrier fence will not be installed at the northeast corner of the Ascon site—next to the intersection of Magnolia and Hamilton—until a later date and will be coordinated with the City of Huntington Beach.

During this work: The existing chain link fence will be removed to make way for the new fence. Fence signage will be replaced after the barrier fence panels are installed.

Onsite air quality monitoring stations will be relocated to a higher elevation after the barrier fence installation, with no gap in the air monitoring program.

Work hours: 7 am to 6 pm

You can expect to see:

  • Temporary lane closures on Magnolia and Hamilton streets
  • Crane and other construction equipment installing the concrete base and fence panels

Mitigation: There will be dust and odor control measures in place during this work. Air quality monitoring continues at the Ascon site 24-hours daily. There will be flagmen to enhance safety, in addition to temporary lane closures.
