Construction around Claremont
Residents are reminded that over the next three weeks Southern California Edison workers will be working on First Street in the Claremont Village, between Indian Hill Boulevard and Yale Avenue. To accommodate the street’s heavy foot traffic and business hours during the day, the work will be performed overnight between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. For those who need to utilize First Street during those hours, traffic is being detoured from westbound First Street onto northbound Yale Avenue, and then to Second Street, according to the city. Staff will follow up with Edison over this three-week period and provide updates for the work.
Colby Circle Closure
New water lines will be installed on Colby Circle as part of the construction of the incoming Colby Neighborhood 95-unit townhome development. The water line improvement is part of the first phases of the project’s construction, which will take shape over the coming months and into the summer of 2022, according to the city. The new water lines will allow for abandonment of current lines which serve residents north of the project site.
The project will close a portion of Colby Circle, between Indian Hill Blvd. and the street’s roundabout, across from Oxford Ave. Residents living on N. Berkeley Ave. will not be able to access Colby Circle via the street. A map depicting the street closure is available at www.ci.claremont.ca.us/construction.

Sidewalk improvement project
Recently, the City of Claremont engaged the services of CT&T Concrete Paving, Inc. to complete sidewalk improvements in the area around Lewis Park and Brooks Avenue, officials shared online.
Community Services Department staff identified “deviated sidewalks” that require removal and replacement. “Staff has delineated areas in need of replacement by marking the sidewalk with white marking paint,” according to the city.
It is unknown when the project will begin but residents adjacent to work sites will receive notice before it gets underway. Typical work hours for the concrete service are Monday through Friday between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Additionally, temporary no parking signs will be installed 72 hours prior to work, the city added.
Concerned residents with questions can contact the Community Services Department at (909) 399-5431 and CT&T’s Project Manager Richard Ramos, who is overseeing the work, at (909) 957-6717.
