Monrovia Renewal North Area Roadwork Operations Continue!

North Section 

Monrovia Renewal construction activities are ongoing in the North Section Project area, which is the area of the City located to the North of and including Hillcrest Boulevard, Greystone Avenue and Grand Avenue. This week, paving operations will take place on streets that are being fully reconstructed, including: 

  • Melrose Avenue, Scenic Drive, Ridgeside Drive, Briarcliff Road, Canyon Boulevard, Grand Avenue, Greystone Avenue, Meadow Lane, Bradoaks Avenue, and portions of Norumbega Drive.
    • Full reconstruction streets receive pavement in 2 courses, a base paving and a cap paving. This first section is the base paving and the final cap paving will follow in the near future. 
    • Manholes will be raised on paved streets
    • Note that due to dusty conditions, increased watering down of the streets will be taking place during the week and on the weekends, and reduced speed limit restrictions are in place. 

South Section

Roadwork activities are scheduled to complete the remaining streets in the South section during the week of November 11.

  • Grinding and Paving Operations will take place on streets that are receiving an asphalt overlay, including: 
    • Portions of Myrtle Avenue, Evergreen Avenue, Bonita Street, Montana Street, and two of the I-210 underpasses. 
  • Upon completion of paving operations, manholes will be raised. 

Visit Monrovia Renewal online to learn more about where construction activities will take place.  

Dust Control

The project team is aware of the dust concerns that are being created by the road reconstruction activities and are working proactively with the contractor to address them. The primary means of dust control is spreading water over the dusty surface and, currently, the water truck is watering each location 4 to 5 times daily. In addition to working days, the water truck will be deployed on Saturdays and Sundays to control the dust until paving operations are underway. One of the additional means of controlling dust in these work areas is by controlling vehicle speeds. The project team has deployed 15 miles per hour signs within the work area and is encouraging all motorists in the area to watch their speeds in the construction zone.
We understand the inconvenience that the construction is causing and we thank you for your patience as we work to complete the street improvements in this area. If you have any questions regarding Monrovia Renewal, please feel free to contact Public Works at (626) 932-5575 or

Suspension Of Street Sweeping Enforcement In North Section Construction Area Of Monrovia Renewal Has Been Extended Through November

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.

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 November 29, 2019.   While construction activity continues in this section, residents are advised to adhere to all posted construction parking signs!

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
