Foothill Boulevard Improvements
Work continues on the Foothill Boulevard Master Plan Improvement Project. The current phase of construction covers the portion of Foothill Boulevard from Yale Avenue to Mountain Avenue. It is anticipated that this construction phase will be completed by the end of September.
- Improvements on the north side of Foothill Boulevard, from Colby Circle to Mountain Avenue, are still being performed. The k-railed traffic control has been removed, and the signal operation has resumed its typical phasing operation. Traffic control along Foothill Boulevard from Colby Circle to Mountain Avenue has returned to one travel lane for the east and west bound directions configuration. While the current traffic control configuration should alleviate some of the congestion, it is still anticipated that the public will continue to experience delays. Please allow extra time if you need to access Condit or Mountain View Elementary Schools, El Roble Intermediate School or Claremont High School.
- On Thursday, September 19, the traffic signal on Foothill Boulevard at Mountain Avenue will be non-operational from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to accommodate traffic signal upgrades. During that time, the intersection will temporarily operate as a four-way stop.
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. Within these construction phases, the Class IV median-separated bikeway construction has been substantially completed, however, these median separated bikeways will remain closed for safety purposes. Additional transition striping will be done prior to opening up the bicycle facilities at the end of the project.
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.

Second Street and Bonita Avenue Resurfacing
On Monday, September 16, All American Asphalt will be resurfacing Second Street and Bonita Avenue, from Harvard Avenue to College Avenue. This work is a continuation of the Village Resurfacing Project that took place in July of 2017. These two street segments were postponed to accommodate the work associated with the Pomona College Museum of Art.
To minimize impacts to the Village, this work will be performed at night, between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m. The work will include street surface grinding and pavement overlay with the placement of two inches of hot mixed rubberized asphalt. These street segments will be closed to traffic in order to safely perform the scheduled roadway reconstruction activities. This work is expected to be completed in one night. Placement of permanent striping will follow within two weeks of the grinding and paving to ensure the asphalt has properly cured.
City of Pomona – Street Rehabilitation Project on Towne Avenue
The City of Pomona’s contractor (All American Asphalt) continues to work on the Street Rehabilitation Project on Towne Avenue, between Harrison Avenue and Foothill Boulevard. During the week of September 3, the contractor will be working on asphalt repairs on the north and southbound lanes adjacent to the median, as well as landscape improvements inside the center medians. During this phase of construction, the lanes next to the medians will be closed, which will reduce both north and southbound traffic to one lane in each direction. This phase of work is anticipated to be completed by the first week of October. The full asphalt overlay of Towne Avenue is tentatively scheduled for the week of October 7.
