Mt. Baldy Pavement Rehabilitation Project Update
On Monday, March 30, the City’s hired contractor, Hardy & Harper, Inc., began the asphalt grinding and overlay phase of the Mt. Baldy Pavement Rehabilitation Project. This work will take place on Mt. Baldy Road, between Mills Avenue and Grand Avenue. This project will consist of a three-inch pavement grind and overlay with hot mixed rubberized asphalt and will follow with pavement striping. This phase of this project is expected to take two days to complete. During this time, access may be limited on Mt. Baldy Road from Mills Avenue to Grand Avenue. The contractor will make accommodations for residents on Strasbourg Court; however there may be times when the roadway may be temporarily inaccessible. Emergency vehicles and all other services will have access throughout the duration of the project. Once the paving portion of this work is completed, the striping subcontractor will return one to two weeks after to complete the striping. This waiting period will allow the asphalt to cure before the pavement striping is applied. Temporary striping will be applied until the final striping can be completed.
Construction Work at the Claremont Depot
On Monday, January 13, work began on the seismic accessibility retrofits to the Claremont Depot. The construction will involve the two most eastern rooms of the building - the former “bike room” and “luggage room.” The two rooms under construction will be fenced off, as will the two parking spaces closest to the Depot. The Museum will remain open during construction. This work was identified when the Claremont Museum of Art entered into the lease with the City in 2015. Proposition C transportation funds will be used to complete the work. Construction should be concluded by April 1, 2020.
