Foothill Boulevard Improvements
Work continues on the Foothill Boulevard Improvement Project. The current phase of construction covers the portion of Foothill Boulevard from Amherst Street to Yale Avenue. With the concrete improvements almost complete in Phase 2, the general contractor will be finishing the construction of the Class IV bikeways in Phase 1 and 2, and constructing the sidewalk from Monte Vista Avenue to the Claremont border beginning May 20 with anticipated completion by May 31. Landscape planting, and electrical work will still continue throughout Phases 1 and 2 during this time.
The Foothill Boulevard improvements are being conducted in four phases. Staff expects each phase to take up to three months to complete. Once construction is completed, Foothill Boulevard will have two vehicle travel lanes in each direction of Foothill Boulevard and will include either a Class IV Bikeway (protected bike lane), Class II Bikeway (bike lane), or a combination of Class II Bikeway (bike lane) and on-street parking. Completion of the project is expected by the end of 2019.

Old School House Condo Development - Sewer and Water Project
On May 13, crews began sewer and water utility work on Colby Circle, between Indian Hill Boulevard and Oxford Avenue. The work includes constructing new sewer and water lines and re-aligning existing sewer and water lines to support the development of the 30 condo units to be constructed on the old hotel portion of the Old School House site. The work will be performed in two phases. This is necessary to ensure that local residential and emergency access is maintained during construction. The first phase will require the full closure of the north/south portion of Colby Circle to the east of Oxford Avenue, to construct a new sewer line. The second phase will require the closure of the east/west portion of Colby Circle, from Indian Hill Boulevard west to the end of the block. This phase will include sewer and water main line installation work. It is anticipated that this project will be completed in six weeks.
Bonita Avenue Water Main Line Installation – Construction Update
Golden State Water crews are continuing work on the Bonita Avenue water main line installation. Over the course of the project, the City has received concerns from the public, as well as affected residents. In response, and moving forward, Golden State Water will not be allowed to perform work on Bonita Avenue and the surrounding streets before 9:00 a.m. Traffic control plans for this project are currently being reevaluated to reduce road closures and public inconvenience.
Construction on the new water main line is 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
- Harrison Avenue (from Mountain Avenue to Cambridge Avenue)
This project is expected to be completed in April 2019.
Base Line Road Improvements – Gable Crossing Development
Century Communities is currently working on public improvements for the Gable Crossing Development on Base Line Road. This phase of construction includes curb, gutter, and driveway approach improvements and will require lane closures and a bike lane closure on eastbound Base Line Road, starting east of Mountain Avenue. During construction, drivers and pedestrians are directed to follow the appropriate construction signs.
Street Improvements - Pomona College Museum of Art
On Monday, February 11, crews began street improvements around the Pomona College Museum of Art site. Construction crews will be installing curb, gutter, and sidewalk on Bonita Avenue, Second Street and College Avenue. Construction is anticipated to continue for the next 12 weeks.
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.
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.
During these construction projects, drivers and pedestrians are directed to follow the appropriate construction signs and remember to share the road with bicyclists. For more information on these or any other construction projects, please contact the Engineering Division at (909) 399-5465.
