Monrovia Renewal North Area Improvements (Water Main Repairs, Concrete Work) Also Continuing On Highland, Greystone, and Prospect - Key Updates for the Week of June 17!

Monrovia Renewal construction activities in the North section will continue this week. Sully Miller Contracting will:

  • Continue water main repairs on:
    • Greystone Avenue
    • Prospect Avenue
  • Concrete work on sidewalk, driveways, curbs and gutters in the area that includes and is to the North and East of Norumbega Road and Greystone Avenue

We will do our best to minimize the impacts to residents.  Sully Miller will deliver notices to all residents in the impacted area(s) prior to work taking place.  The notices will outline the work taking place, a schedule overview, and information on associated impacts, such as parking restrictions and driveway access:

  1. Initial Notice - This notice will be distributed approximately one week prior to work commencing.
  2. Two Day Notice - A final notice will be provided two days before the activity begins to serve as a reminder of the upcoming work and associated impacts.

In addition, parking notices will be posted in the areas where parking will be impacted.  During these activities, there will be intermittent road closures and parking restrictions.  Streets and driveways may be inaccessible for intermittent periods during the day but will be accessible every night.

We recognize that construction can be messy and inconvenient, and thank you for your cooperation and patience as we work through these improvements!  For more information on what work will be happening on your street and general inquiries about the Monrovia Renewal project, please contact the Public Works Division at (626) 932-5575 or monroviarenewal@ci.monrovia.ca.us.

Monrovia Renewal North Area Road Work Construction Activities Set To Continue, With Major Street Work Now Underway!

As of this week, street reconstruction activities are underway in the North Section of the City’s Monrovia Renewal Project. Work began this week with pulverizing activities that are being completed on the streets that are scheduled for a full 4” Reconstruction.  Work on grading and material removal will continue throughout the week with final paving taking place between June 13 and 18!

The planned street improvements as a part of Monrovia Renewal include 4” Full Reconstruction, 2” Asphalt Overlay, and Microsurfacing totaling nearly 2.3 million square feet of street improvements. As this is the largest section of Monrovia Renewal, street improvements will continue between now and August 2019.  For purposes of managing a project of this scale, Sully-Miller is conducting the paving work in phases and each area will receive a subsequent schedule and notification prior to work taking place in their immediate area.  If your street is not listed in the information below, it will be coming shortly!

Monrovia Renewal Phase 1

The Schedule for upcoming street improvements is as follows:

  • Pulverizing / Street Reconstruction
    • Streets Include: Madison Avenue, Crescent Drive, El Nido Avenue, Scenic Drive from Highland to Heather Heights and from Magnolia to Myrtle, Heather Heights Court, Lotone Street, Cloverleaf Drive and Steadman Place
    • As outlined in the step by step overview below, these streets will be:
      • Paving:Will continue through this coming week.
  • Grind and Overlay
    • Streets Include: Magnolia Avenue, Patterson Drive, Hidden Valley Road and Alta Vista Avenue
      • Grinding: June 17 - 19
      • Paving: June 19 - 20

The schedule for the remaining street areas will be shaped prior to work taking place in those areas.

Overview of Street Reconstruction Process and Impacts:

As part of the complete reconstruction, the streets will be pulverized to dirt in a multiple step process:

  1. Day 1: A machine will pulverize the existing roadway surface 10" deep to create new base material. This dirt material will be rolled and compacted to be driven upon.
  2. Day 2: A couple of days later, crews will return with large machines to remove 4" of the pulverized material. This dirt material will, again, be rolled and compacted to be driven upon.
  3. Days 3 & 4: After the material has been removed, crews will return to pave new asphalt on the street. Paving will be completed in 2 - 2" sections. In some cases, the paving sections will be completed on separate days, and in others, the paving will take place the same day.

*Although this process will take approximately 4 working days for each street section, there might be downtime between each phase meaning that the entire process might take a couple of weeks.

During this process, it is important to remember:

  • Although many streets will be turned to dirt, vehicles may still access the street (except for intermittent periods during active construction).
  • There will be parking restrictions in place during work hours however vehicles will be permitted to park on the street at the end of working days. PLEASE ADHERE TO ALL POSTED PARKING RESTRICTIONS.
  • Driveways will be accessible every night; however access may be limited during daytime work activities.
  • Pulverized streets may remain dirt streets for up to three weeks

The project area map below indicates the specific road work that will take place on each street. More details on the upcoming road work for Monrovia Renewal will be included in future updates, including dates and specific street locations. We appreciate your patience and support while we work to execute these improvements throughout our community!

Suspension of Street Sweeping Enforcement in North Section Construction Area as Monrovia Renewal Work Continues

As we have embarked on Monrovia Renewal North area improvements and have assessed the extensive nature of the construction activity, the City has measured the need to suspend traditional street sweeping operations and enforcement while construction is underway. Beginning Monday, June 17, posted street sweeping restrictions will not be enforced in the current work area, specifically, the portion of the City that is north of and including Hillcrest Boulevard, Grand Avenue, and Greystone Avenue.

While construction activity continues in this section, residents are advised to adhere to all posted construction parking signs! The suspension of enforcement applies only to street sweeping restrictions; all other parking and vehicle code sections will remain enforced.

The suspension of citations related to street sweeping will take into effect June 17, 2019 and will continue through August 31, 2019.

We appreciate all of your patience as we continue Monrovia Renewal. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to call (626) 932-5575 or monroviarenewal@ci.monrovia.ca.us.


Water Pipeline Repair on Canyon Boulevard as Part of Monrovia Renewal North Section is Nearing Completion!

Sully-Miller crews have completed the water pipeline repair along Canyon Boulevard. They will continue making all necessary connections of the new pipeline to the water system but this work will be confined to the site and area surrounding Oakglade Reservoir. This work will segue to the planned site and tank improvements that will be completed at Oakglade Reservoir. As the final part of these improvements, crews will return later this summer to complete the road construction that is planned for Canyon Boulevard. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to complete these improvements.

Additionally, updated construction schedules and notices will be available on the City’s website and on the City’s social media accounts.  And please know that all of us here at the City appreciate your patience during these periods of construction activity!


Monrovia Renewal South Section - City is Working to Finalize a Plan to Complete All of the Identified Street Repaving Work in the Area... Which Totals 1.35 Million Square Feet of Street Repairs!

If you’ve been thinking that the City isn’t quite done yet with the South Section of Monrovia Renewal… you’d be right!

As you may recall, the South Section of our overall Citywide infrastructure improvement plan includes the entire portion of the City located south of the I-210 Freeway.  And during the past few months, the City has been working to develop an alternative plan to complete the street repair work for that particular section of town.

To date, we have been working with one contractor (Sequel Construction), however, for a variety of coordination and scheduling issues, here at the City, we have had to develop an alternative plan in order to finish the identified work.

To date, Sequel Construction has completed over 500,000 square feet of street improvements in the South Section.  However, there is still around 1.35 million square feet of street improvements that have not yet been started.  Given that factor, our Public Works Department is working to finalize a recommendation for City Council consideration in May that will allow us to effectively complete all of the remaining street work.  Based on our current review of existing street conditions, the streets located in the South Section that still require work include:

 5th Avenue  8th Avenue   9th Avenue  Alta Street
 Alta Vista Avenue  Anita Street  Beneath 210 Freeway  Bonita Street
 Diamond Street  Duarte Road  El Norte Street  Encino Avenue
 Encino Way  Encino Place  Enterprise Way  Evergreen Avenue
 Genoa Street  Hurtsview Avenue  Ivy Avenue  Monrovista Avenue
 Montana Street  Alamitas Avenue  Mountain Avenue  Myrtle Avenue
 Naples Street  Peck Road  Pomona Avenue  Shamrock Avenue
   Spanner Street  Venice Avenue  

 

A map highlighting the streets that still require additional work is included below.  In addition, all of us here at the City appreciate the patience that the community has had with us as we’ve worked through executing our signature capital improvement initiative.  Monrovia Renewal has certainly been messy, but the end result is upgraded infrastructure throughout our community.  Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact a member of our project team (626) 932-5575 or at monroviarenewal@ci.monrovia.ca.us.

A Note on Construction Schedules...

We are committed to providing you with timely updates on the project's progress and the construction scheduled to take place. Unfortunately, in construction, schedules frequently change at the last minute, due to weather conditions, crew availability, coordination with other agencies, and other unforeseen conditions. We strive to update when these changes occur, and we thank you for your flexibility in advance!


Sewer Cleaning and Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV)

As a part of our routine maintenance program and to facilitate the design of Monrovia Renewal repairs, all of the sewer lines in the City are being cleaned and inspected using Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) technology.

When National Plant Services is out in the field, they use a jetter (or cleaning truck) and a box truck containing the television equipment. The equipment is situated next to sewer manholes located in the road, and the crew takes about 30 minutes at each manhole location. The lines are first cleaned and then inspected utilizing the television equipment.
