Brief History

Construction on Foothill Boulevard is scheduled to begin in October. On Tuesday, September 11, the City Council awarded the contracts for the Foothill Boulevard Master Plan Improvements. The City identified the Foothill Boulevard Corridor as an area for improvement in the 2006 General Plan Update. The City was successful in obtaining the Claremont portion of the roadway from Caltrans in 2012. When Caltrans relinquished the roadway to the City, the State gave the City $5.7 million to upgrade and maintain the road.

Over the past five years, the City has gathered feedback from the community and City commissions on a master plan for the roadway. In 2017, the Master Plan was completed and the City hired an engineering firm to complete construction plans. The final design for Foothill Boulevard will include vehicle, pedestrian, and accessibility improvements, new bike lanes, stormwater improvements, new city monument signs, new streets lights, bus stops, landscaping, and irrigation.

The City was successful in obtaining a $7 million SB1 grant from the California Transportation Administration as well as smaller grants from other agencies. More than half of the $16 million project will be paid using grant funds. Completion of the project is expected by the end of 2019.
