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.
Indian Hill Boulevard Lane Closure (north of Arrow) – SCE Vault Replacement
On Monday, October 8, Southern California Edison began work to remove and replace a vault on the east side of Indian Hill Boulevard, between Arrow Highway and Green Street. This work will require northbound traffic to merge to one lane starting at Arrow Highway. Access to the Village area, as well as Southbound traffic on Indian Hill Boulevard, should not be affected by this work. Northbound traffic will resume normal conditions at Green Street. This work is expected to be completed by mid-November. Any residents and businesses affected by a power outage will be notified by Southern California Edison. During this construction, drivers and pedestrians are directed to follow the appropriate construction signs.
Residential Street Slurry Project - Streets South of Arrow Highway
American Asphalt will be starting the Residential Slurry Seal project on residential streets south of Arrow Highway. Preparation work for this project, which includes rubberized crack sealing and routing, began on October 8. The slurry seal placement will begin on October 21, and is expected to be completed by mid-November.
All residents who live on streets that will receive the slurry seal treatment will be notified one week in advance of their street’s slurry seal date. The notification will include: the time the street will be closed and reopened, the placement and timing of No Parking signs, alternative parking locations, key points to be aware of after the slurry is applied, and any postponements due to weather conditions. The project includes all residential streets located south of Arrow Highway.
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.
