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.
