Southern California Edison (SCE) Work Continues on Ivy Avenue in Front of City Hall
Contractors for Southern California Edison are continuing work to replace electrical infrastructure and equipment along Ivy Avenue, between Olive Avenue and Foothill Boulevard. The project will last approximately 4 more weeks with the largest impact work taking place directly in front of City Hall, where a large vault will be removed and replaced.
While work is taking place between Lemon Avenue and Lime Avenues, traffic will be reduced to one lane, southbound, during working hours. In addition, all parking in this area will be restricted, with the exception of the ADA stalls at City Hall. Visitors will still be able to access all normal entrances of City Hall and the Police Department but will need to be mindful of all posted signs for parking, detours, and accessibility.
In order to complete some of the electrical improvements, a power outage has been scheduled for Sunday, February 23, starting at midnight until 10:00 a.m. that morning. Customers who will be impacted by this outage will receive notifications from SCE.
Should you have any questions regarding this work, please call Southern California Edison at (855) 683-9067, or the Public Works Department at (626) 932-5575.
Tree Trimming Maintenance Ongoing
West Coast Arborists has returned to the City to resume tree-trimming activities. Their efforts are focused in the area of the City to the North of Foothill Boulevard and East of Myrtle Avenue. Work will continue for the next couple of months. Please be mindful of any posted parking restrictions. If you have any questions or concerns about these activities, please contact Public Works at (626) 932-5575.
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.
