Upcoming Gold Line construction street closures
This week and next, the Foothill Gold Line’s design and build team will be working at railroad crossings in La Verne and Pomona.
Fulton Road crossing
A four-day street closure will commence on Friday, July 22 at the Fulton Road railroad crossing in La Verne.
According to Gold Line, “KPJV [Kiewit-Parsons, a Joint Venture] crews will be working at the Fulton Rd. railroad crossing to replace the existing Metrolink track then repave the work zone.” The work, part of the 9.1-mile Foothill Gold Line light rail project, will affect vehicle and pedestrian traffic beginning at 7 a.m. Friday, July 22. The work is expected to conclude at 7 a.m. Tuesday, July 26.
“Access to homes, businesses, and churches on Fulton Rd. within the closure area north and south of the railroad crossing will be maintained at all times, as well as access to First St., Roosevelt St., and Brandt St.,” the news release read.
Arrow Hwy., Bonita, and Garey avenues will remain open during the four-day closure.
Metrolink station access from Fulton Rd. will be closed, but vehicles will be able to access the station parking at Santa Fe St. and Garey Ave.
“This work was previously scheduled for 7/15 – 7/18, but was postponed due to material availability,” the news release read. “Crews will return to Fulton Rd. a final time later this year to complete the crossing reconstruction and bridge construction.”
Garey Avenue closure
The following week, another four-day street closure will occur, this time at Garey Avenue’s railroad crossing in Pomona.
The work, also part of the light rail project, will see KPJV crews replacing existing Metrolink track then repaving the work zone. This work requires a full closure of Garey Ave. at the railroad crossing and will affect pedestrian and vehicle traffic from 7 a.m. Friday, July 29 to 7 a.m. Tuesday, August 2.
“Access to homes and businesses on Garey Ave. within the closure area north and south of the railroad crossing will be maintained at all times,” the news release read, and Arrow Hwy., Bonita and Towne avenues will remain open.
