May 22 Community Meeting:
57 Lambert Road Interchange
A community meeting is scheduled on May 22 to provide an overview of the upcoming 57 Fwy/Lambert Road Interchange Improvement project. The meeting will be held at 6:00 p.m. in Community Rooms A&B, Level 2 of the Brea Civic & Cultural Center.
The project is scheduled for completion by December 2021. Improvements include providing additional capacity, better traffic flow, enhanced safety, reduced congestion and delays. Additionally, the project will enable the future construction of the Northbound Truck Climbing Lane, between Lambert Road and the Orange County and Los Angeles County line. City staff will work with Caltrans to minimize construction disruption, manage traffic and support ongoing communication throughout the project.
The total project cost is approximately $98 million. Brea was awarded $65.7 million from Senate Bill 1 Federal Transportation Funding and federal freight highway program funds. The City has also committed over $12 million for the project from its local mitigation funds, and received over $12 million from 2018 OCTA Measure M2 Funds for construction.
