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 North Area Improvements - Updates for the Week of April 22
Monrovia Renewal construction activities in the North section will continue this week. Sully Miller Contracting will:
- Continue water main repairs on:
- Canyon Boulevard
- Greystone Avenue
- Norumbega Drive
- Concrete work will continue on:
- Alta Vista Avenue
- Patterson Drive
- Scenic Drive
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:
- Initial Notice - This notice will be distributed approximately one week prior to work commencing.
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

Major Pipeline Construction Set to Continue on Canyon Boulevard as Part of Monrovia Renewal North Section Efforts!
During the construction of a 16” water pipeline as part of the Monrovia Renewal North Section Infrastructure Improvement Project crews have suffered a few setback. They encountered several large boulders, some as big as a VW Bug, that have slowed the progress. Work is scheduled to continue this next week on this water improvement – which is designed to improve water flows, pressure, and reliability in the area – includes major construction efforts to install a 16” pipeline from the intersection of Laurel Lane / Canyon Crest Drive, over to Canyon Boulevard, and then north on Canyon Boulevard up to the Oakglade Reservoir. The map below highlights the section of Canyon Boulevard where the work will be taking place.
During construction, parking will be restricted during working hours along Canyon Boulevard, from Canyon Crest Drive to Oakglade Drive. This will be necessary given that traffic will be reduced to one lane, with proper traffic control and flaggers in place to safely direct vehicle traffic. The City will maintain vehicle access to Canyon Park, and furthermore, pedestrian access along the sidewalk will also be maintained.
Given the extent of these improvements, we are asking that all motorists and pedestrians traveling in the area be cautious and aware of the activity occurring, and to expect delays when traveling through the identified construction area. Of note, we expect this particular bit of construction activity to be completed by Friday, April 26.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Public Works Division at (626) 932-5575, or via email. 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!
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.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Public Works Division at (626) 932-5575.
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.
