Utility Location Work at Grade Crossings for Gold Line Design

On Monday, August 14, the subcontractor for the Gold Line Authority (Aztec Engineering Group) will begin pothole work to verify existing utility locations and depths at the following locations, adjacent to the railroad tracks:

  • Cambridge Avenue
  • Indian Hill Boulevard
  • College Avenue
  • Claremont Boulevard

The construction locations will be within 300 feet (north and south) of the railroad tracks. Traffic control will consist of single lane tapers, flagmen, and sidewalk closures where necessary. Pedestrian access for businesses on Indian Hill Boulevard will be maintained.

The construction is anticipated to take approximately 8 working days, with a completion date of August 24. All work will be completed during daytime hours (7 am to 5 pm), Monday through Thursday.

Motorists may experience delays while traveling northbound and southbound along the above-listed streets during times when trains are scheduled to stop or pass through Claremont. Metrolink trains are typically directed to reduce travel speeds when construction is taking place within, or adjacent to, the railroad right of way, which results in increased gate down time.

Please contact the Engineering Division at (909) 399-5465 with any questions.
