Monrovia Renewal is the largest public works project in the City's history!
This exciting initiative is making citywide repairs to our water and sewer pipelines, water facilities, streets, sidewalks, curbs and gutters. These improvements are expected to take 4-5 years to complete and cost $51.7 million.
Keep up to date on the project, related field work, and construction starting Summer 2016 through 2020.

Monrovia Renewal South Section Infrastructure Improvements:
Work for Week of October 15, 2018
The Monrovia Renewal Improvements in the South section are continuing to make great progress! This work includes a full battery of water, sewer, street, and sidewalk improvements to the areas of Monrovia located south of the 210 Freeway. Sequel Contractors broke ground on this project in April 2018 and the work will last through the remainder of the year.
Based on our progress to date, the following work is scheduled to take place this week:
- Removal and replacement of concrete curb, gutter, sidewalk, and driveway approaches on Genoa Street, Diamond Street, Rosewood Drive, Leafwood Drive, and 5th Avenue.
- Storm drain service work on Fano Street.
If Construction is in Your Neighborhood, Be on the Lookout for These Notices!
Advance notices will be distributed to residents and business owners on the areas where work will take place. Parking restrictions have been posted in the areas where parking will be impacted, pursuant to the following notification process:
How and when will you be notified? The contracting team will distribute notices on the following schedule, which will vary by the specific work in each location:
- Initial Notice – All residents and businesses in the construction area to inform them of pending work.
- Five Day Notice – Specific notices will be delivered to the impacted areas five (5) days prior to work commencing. This notice will outline the work taking place, overview the schedule, and provide information on the associated impacts, such as parking restrictions or driveway access.
- Two Day Notice – A final notice will be provided two days before the activity begins to remind folks of the coming work and impacts.
In addition to any posted parking restrictions, the team has also marked out streets, sidewalks, curbs and gutter, and driveways. We know construction can be inconvenient and messy, and we certainly appreciate your patience and cooperation during these activities!
Trees to be Removed and Replaced Related to Monrovia Renewal Work
Throughout the City, a number of trees have been identified as being problematic due to their health and condition as well as the impact they are having on the infrastructure. These trees have been assessed for their overall health and condition and for opportunities to minimize their impact on the infrastructure (such as root pruning or installing root barriers). The ultimate goal is to preserve as many trees as possible; however, in situations when the health of the tree is declining and the trees are impacting the infrastructure, a decision has been made to remove them in coordination with ongoing or upcoming Monrovia Renewal construction activity.
As a part of the replacement of the sidewalk, the tree wells will be left intact so that new trees can be planted back in their place. The Field Services team is working to identify suitable replacement trees and will work to replace them when the construction is complete and the planting season is desirable.

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.
