As part of the I-5 South County Improvement Project, crews will perform loud pile-driving activities along the northbound I-5 bridge at Avery Parkway beginning around Monday, February 8.  The work will take place up to three weeks. 

Pile driving is necessary for the foundation of the new Avery bridge as part of the freeway widening. Residents should be aware the work may be loud. Schedules could change due to inclement weather or operational factors.  

In celebration of Earth Day, the City's trash hauler, Waste Management of Orange County, and green waste processor, Tierra Verde Industries, are dropping off FREE compost at the Mission Viejo Animal Shelter (28095 Hillcrest) on Saturday, April 24th. Mission Viejo residents are welcome to bring their own shovel plus a bag or container and fill it up with fresh, healthy compost for their garden. Residents may stop by any time after 11:00 a.m., but please note quantities are limited, so each person will be allotted up to 36 gallons of compost while supplies last.

California’s citrus trees are being threatened by the deadly plant disease, Huanglongbing (HLB).
