Foothill Boulevard Road Work - Mid-May - Late June - Intermittent Parking Restrictions Between Mountain / Shamrock Aves and Mayflower / 5th Aves
Construction is now underway on Foothill Boulevard, and the work will continue through mid-June. This work includes repairing the asphalt sections of Foothill Boulevard located at the western and eastern ends of the City, and upgrading the striping along the entire length of the street.
During construction, please expect parking restrictions and travel delays, and if possible, plan your trips accordingly. The approximate schedule is outlined below, and we will post updates should there be changes as the work progresses.
- Concrete Improvements Continuing
Crews are working on targeted concrete repairs and replacements that are focused on potions of the concrete that tie into the asphalt sections or that will be impacted by the striping operations. This work will continue throughout the duration of the project and may result in intermittent lane closures.
- Water Service Line Repairs – Continuing through June 16, 2017
During the week of May 30, 2017, Sully-Miller will be repairing and replacing approximately 20 water service lines along Foothill Boulevard. These service lines have exceeded their useful lifespan and the City will be replacing them prior to paving the street to avoid unnecessary excavations of the street surface. Customer notification will be provided before any of the work is initiated.

- Paving operations along Foothill Boulevard will begin on June 26, 2017. The schedule for the paving operations is outlined below. The working hours for this project are from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

During construction, one traffic lane will remain open in both directions at all times. However, please expect delays on Foothill Boulevard when the construction work is underway, and we would ask that everyone please drive safely through the construction area while work is in progress.

Upcoming Renovations to Julian Fisher Park! Set to Begin Mid-July
Come to our open house on Wednesday, June 21st, at 7 p.m. to discuss the planned upgrades at Julian Fisher Park!
Renovations at Julian Fisher Park are set to begin in mid-July and are expected to be complete by late Fall 2017. To upgrade the park, we will be installing new lights, upgrading the basketball courts, and installing the City’s first Portland Loo restroom!
During construction, we encourage residents to utilize the basketball courts at the Mary Wilcox Youth Center Gym, and the playground / picnic space at Recreation Park.
Tree Trimming Activities Around Town
West Coast Arborists (WCA) has been in town now for the past several weeks working on our annual tree maintenance program. Tree trimming efforts are currently focused on the area below Foothill Boulevard between Mayflower Avenue and Myrtle Avenue (including the area below the I-210 Freeway). WCA is approximately 80% of the way complete in the section, and all work should be done by the end of June 2017.
In addition to those tree trimming efforts, WCA has done some additional tree trimming work in Old Town during the past few weeks, and before the end of this month, will also complete tree trimming efforts at Lucinda Garcia Park and along the entire length of Foothill Blvd (on both the north and south sides).
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this matter, please contact Alex Tachiki at (626) 932-5553 or send him an email.

Historic Santa Fe Depot Renovations Underway - Public Access to the Station Square Promenade Closed During Construction
Restoration efforts for the Historic Santa Fe Depot at Station Square began in mid-January 2017.
To facilitate construction, the Station Square Promenade (area highlighted in red on the map) will be closed to public access during rehabilitation of the Historic Santa Fe Depot. It will be secured with fencing and only individuals associated with the construction effort will be allowed onto the site while the work is being coordinated. Additionally, the City will be placing pedestrian detour and way-finding signs on site to direct individuals around the construction area. The Monrovia Gold Line Station will remain open to the public and will not be impacted by the construction activity.
Foothill Transit will be moving their bus stop for Line 270, which is currently located at the terminus of Primrose Avenue at Station Square. During construction, this stop will be relocated onto Myrtle Avenue at the 494 stop.
We apologize to everyone for any inconvenience the construction activity will create, and are looking forward to expeditiously completing the restoration of the Historic Santa Fe Depot! Based on our current construction schedule, it is anticipated that the work will take around 6 months to complete, which puts the end of construction in Summer 2017.
