Bonita Avenue Water Main Line Installation
Golden State Water crews are continuing work on a water main line installation on several streets. On Monday, December 3, Golden State Water began construction on the new water main line on the following streets:
- Bonita Avenue (from Carnegie Avenue to Indian Hill Boulevard)
- Mountain Avenue (from Bonita Avenue to Harrison Avenue)
- Cambridge Avenue (from Bonita Avenue to Harrison Avenue)
- Berkeley Avenue (from Bonita Avenue to Harrison Avenue)
- Grinnell Drive
Crews have completed the water main installation on Bonita Avenue and Cambridge Avenue and will continue construction on the remaining streets. After the water main installation has been completed on all streets, Golden State Water will install water lateral services and fire hydrants. After all construction has been completed, crews will return to perform the final paving restoration. This project is expected to be completed in April 2019. All residents and businesses affected by the work will be contacted directly by Golden State Water.
Base Line Road Improvements – Century Communities
On Friday, January 11, Century Communities began construction within the public right-of-way along Base Line Road. This construction is associated with utility connections and required improvements for the Gable Crossing housing project. Construction will be completed in approximately nine weeks. This work will require a bike lane closure on eastbound Base Line Road, starting east of Mountain Avenue.
Golden State Water - Padua Avenue Water Main Line Installation
On Monday, January 7, Golden State Water began a water main line installation project along Padua Avenue, from Miramar Avenue to Pomello Drive, and Moab Drive. This project will include exploratory trenching, which will help reduce conflict with existing infrastructure, and will continue with the installation of an eight-inch water main line, residential services, and fire hydrants. At times throughout the project, Padua Avenue will be closed to northbound or southbound traffic in order to accommodate a safe work area. The exact dates and times of the closures will be indicated on the Changeable Message Signs that will be located at Base Line Road and Mount Baldy Road. This project is expected to be completed by April. All residents affected by the construction will be notified by Golden State Water.
Golden State Water - Indian Hill Boulevard Water Main Line Installation
On Monday, January 7, Golden State Water began preliminary work on Indian Hill Boulevard, from Colby Circle to Wagner Drive, for a water main line installation project that will take place in the upcoming months. This preliminary work consists of exploratory trenching, which will help reduce conflict with existing infrastructure once the project begins. This work will require single travel lane closures for northbound and southbound traffic on Indian Hill Boulevard. Access to Claremont High School will not be affected. This work is expected to take one week to complete. During construction, drivers and pedestrians are directed to follow the appropriate signs. For more information on these projects, please contact the Engineering Division at (909) 399-5465.
Construction at Our Lady of Assumption Church
Our Lady of Assumption (OLA) began construction at the church property at 435 Berkeley Avenue in November. The project, which received Architectural Commission approval in late 2017, will add a new vestibule to the front of OLA’s main church building, bringing it closer to Berkeley Avenue. The new vestibule would provide a much-needed transitional area between the church sanctuary and the front door. Other improvements include a new entry that provides ADA access into the new vestibule, new trellises in an interior courtyard and other minor structural and interior improvements. The construction process is anticipated to be 9 to 11 months. OLA has recently installed a temporary tent facility near the northeast corner of their property where church services will be held while the main church building is under construction.
Foothill Boulevard Master Plan Improvements
Phase one of the Foothill Boulevard Improvement Project is now underway. Work began on Monday, October 29. This phase includes work on Foothill Boulevard from Monte Vista Avenue to Amherst Street.
Improvements will be conducted in four phases. Staff expects each phase to take up to three months to complete. Each phase of construction is split into three different segments - the north side, south side, and median islands. Any of these segments will be under construction at any given time, leaving at least one lane open for vehicular traffic and either the north or south sidewalk open for pedestrian access. Full road closures and detours are not anticipated.
Changeable message signs and construction signs have been placed on Foothill Boulevard, near Towne Avenue and Monte Vista Avenue, to notify motorists of the construction. Notifications regarding the project were also delivered to all properties along Foothill Boulevard. Completion of the project is expected by the end of 2019.
