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

Just a reminder that as the construction activity continues in the Monrovia Renewal North area, the City has suspended enforcement of street sweeping parking restrictions. This action will, hopefully, alleviate the burden of the construction related parking restrictions and make it a little easier for residents to access their properties while construction is taking place.

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 effect from June 17 through August 31, 2019.   We appreciate all of your patience with all of the impacts related to Monrovia Renewal. Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact our team at (626) 932-5575 or

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.
