North Section Paving Slated to Resume near the End of October
This week, Sully-Miller shared with staff their proposed paving schedule for the remaining paving work to be completed in the North Section of Monrovia Renewal. There are a lot of components that dictate the paving schedule, including the completion of all concrete work and underground utility work in advance of paving, as well as the availability of paving crews, equipment and asphalt material. According to their schedule, Sully-Miler will resume paving operations during the week of October 30 and continue for approximately 15 working days.
Over the next couple of weeks, as the team prepares for paving activities, residents that are in the sections remaining to be paved will see the following activity taking place:
- Weeks of September 30 and October 7: Utility Lowering (Manholes, Water Valves)
- Week of October 7 – Pulverizing and Grading Will begin on streets that are to be reconstructed.
- Week of October 14 – Grinding to begin on streets that are to be overlaid
As work continues to progress over the coming weeks, we will be sure to continue to share all of the up to date schedules and information about ongoing construction activity.

Suspension of Street Sweeping Enforcement in North Section Construction Area of Monrovia Renewal Has Been Extended Through September
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 be effective until September 30, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Installing Striping on all streets that have been recently paved!
There are two sizable streets that remain to be grinded and paved in the South Section, Myrtle Avenue and Evergreen Avenue.

We anticipate that all work in the South Section will be completed by November and we will be sure to keep everyone informed of the schedule as we learn more!

Southern California Edison Electrical System Improvements Impacting Portions of Myrtle, Walnut, and Primrose
Construction crews and inspectors from Southern California Edison (SCE) are continuing to coordinate a significant electrical system improvement/relocation project that is affecting the area of Myrtle Avenue, Primrose Avenue, and Walnut Avenue. As you might recall, work previously broke ground in June on a project to relocate some existing SCE utility lines out of an alley and over to Walnut Avenue to connect vaults from Myrtle Avenue to the SCE substation on Primrose. While work did begin in June, there were some engineering and design issues that have been addressed and the crews have returned to work.
For the next couple of weeks, work will be focused along Walnut Avenue where significant trenching will take place as demonstrated in the photo below! Construction crews, inspectors, and City representatives have coordinated these efforts with the local businesses as there will be intermittent road closures and the reduction of traffic to westbound moving vehicles only for the next couple of weeks. This will allow the crews to continue the trenching and installation in the most effective manner possible as well as staging equipment and materials.
Please avoid the area of Walnut Avenue, between Myrtle and Primrose, for the time being while this work continues. Should you need to travel in this area, please watch for construction activity and be aware of all road closure and detour signs.
As work progresses, it will shift onto portions of Myrtle Avenue and Primrose Avenue. Staff will be sure to communicate directly with the directly impacted residents and business owners as well as providing updates within the weekly update.
Please contact Public Works at (626) 932-5575 or firstname.lastname@example.org with any immediate questions or concerns.
