Foothill Boulevard Improvements

Work continues on the Foothill Boulevard Improvement Project. The current phase of construction covers the portion of Foothill Boulevard from Yale Avenue to Mountain Avenue. Traffic signal modification work will continue for the traffic signal at Indian Hill and Foothill Boulevard.  This modification work will take place from Monday, July 15 through Wednesday, July 17. During this time, the signal will be down between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Necessary pedestrian detours will be provided if access at the signalized intersection cannot be maintained. 

While Phase 3 is under construction, landscape and electrical work will continue to progress within the first two phases, from Monte Vista Avenue to Yale Avenue. The Class IV median-separated bikeway construction has been completed, but will remain closed for safety purposes until the project is completed in December 2019.

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.  As the project moves along, updates will be posted on the City’s website. Completion of the project is expected by the end of 2019.

The City recently awarded contract to PCI of Azusa for a refreshing of the street striping on Indian Hill Boulevard (from Armstrong Drive to Santa Fe Avenue), College Avenue (from First Street to Arrow Highway), and Mills Avenue (from Foothill Boulevard and Mt. Baldy Road). To create minimal traffic delays, all work will be done at night between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. Work will begin on Monday, July 8. PCI will begin work at Indian Hill Boulevard and Armstrong Drive, and will work their way south.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Indian Hill Boulevard: Monday, July 8 through Friday, July 12
  • College Avenue: Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19
  • Mills Avenue: Monday, July 22 through Friday, 26

There may be minor traffic impacts, but streets will not be closed during work. This will be a relatively quiet operation with minor equipment noise for the duration of the project. To keep everyone safe, please proceed with caution during this time and adhere to all traffic control directives.

Golden State Water – Bonita Avenue Water Main Line Installation Project

On Monday, June 24, Golden State Water began the final phase of construction to complete the water main line installation on Bonita Avenue, Harrison Avenue, and the surrounding streets. This phase will consist of grinding and paving of the existing utility trenches and the adjacent roadway surface. The repaving of all the affected streets is expected to be completed by Thursday, June 27. The contractor will then return the week of July 8 to place slurry seal on the south side of Bonita Avenue, from Carnegie Avenue to Grinnell Drive.

After all the affected streets have been repaved, Golden State Water’s contractor will return to complete the final striping of all the affected lane lines, pavement legends, and crosswalks. The final striping is tentatively scheduled for the week of July 15. Temporary paint striping and/or slurry tabs will be used to replace the pavement striping until the contractor has returned to perform the final repairs. No construction work related to this project will be allowed the week of July 1, to avoid any potential conflicts with 4th of July events

  

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.

 

Base Line Road Median Installation Improvements – Gable Crossing Development

Century Communities continues to work on public improvements on Base Line Road. The work includes the construction of a center median along Base Line Road near the western end of the project, between Villa Maria and Oxford. This construction 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.

 

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.
