During the past month, several projects related to the overall Monrovia Renewal project have been initiated and this coming week, additional water line improvements are set to begin on Primrose Avenue!
In partnership with the construction firm, Ramona Inc., the city is coordinating the replacement of old and damaged water lines on Primrose Avenue (from Huntington Drive to Central Avenue), which began on Sept. 12. That work will then continue in the ensuing weeks on Cypress Avenue (from Shamrock Avenue to Sherman Avenue).
Work hours are set for 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
There will be temporary parking restrictions in the work zone. Crews will consist of up to five members and there will be heavy equipment on site and associated construction noise.
Both the street and curbs will be cut into, to reach the water service line. “No Parking” signs in the impacted area will be placed 48 hours in advance. There will be partial street closures during the day, which will then re-open at night.
Please use caution when driving in the area and plan to take alternate routes. Always adhere to signs and instructions from crew members for safety.
Given that the improvements will be made to water lines, there may be a chance that an individual residence or business may be impacted for a few hours during the work. In such events, all impacted individuals/businesses will be notified at least 48 hours in advance. If you receive such a notice and have a safety or health-related concern with any brief shut-off, please contact the Public Works Division immediately at (626) 932-5575 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
