The city plans a series of improvements along Carmenita Road. Bids for the $26,650 project will go out early next year, with construction to begin sometime in the spring, Cerritos spokeswoman Michele Ogle said.
Raised medians will be built and landscaped on Carmenita between 166th and 183rd streets. Crumbling pavement between 166th and South streets will be repaired, as will the Carmenita ramps to the California 91 freeway. Also, a left-turn lane from northbound Carmenita to westbound 183rd will be built.
