County Announces New 'Back in School' Route for Trucks Hauling Sediment from Devils Gate Dam

Published : Thursday, August 8, 2019 | 4:42 AM

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works is implementing an adjusted in-school haul route for trucks hauling sediment from Devil’s Gate Dam in Pasadena as school begins later this month.

The new haul route was designed to avoid school traffic in the morning during drop-offs and in the afternoon during pick-ups.

Together, the in-school and summer haul routes attempt to balance truck traffic between the communities of Pasadena and Altadena on the east side of the reservoir, and La Cañada Flintridge on the west side, the LA County Public Works Department said in an announcement.

The announcement said the adjusted route will be in effect beginning Thursday, August 15:

From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., all haul trucks accessing the project site will exit the I-210 Freeway using Arroyo Blvd. or Windsor Ave., turn Left onto Oak Grove Drive and enter the project site. All trucks hauling sediment away from the project site will travel on Oak Grove Drive back to Windsor Ave. to enter the I-210 Freeway either eastbound to Irwindale or westbound to Sun Valley.

From 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., all trucks accessing the project site will exit the I-210 Freeway using Arroyo Blvd./Windsor Ave., turn Left onto Oak Grove Drive and enter the project site. All trucks hauling sediment away from the project site will turn right onto Oak Grove Drive to Berkshire Place to enter the I-210 Freeway either eastbound to Irwindale or westbound to Sun Valley.

From 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., all haul trucks will follow the same route as the 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. period, exiting and entering the I-210 Freeway using Arroyo Blvd./Windsor Ave.

The in-school haul route avoids school traffic in the morning during drop-offs and in the afternoon during pick-ups. Together, the In-School and Summer haul routes balance truck traffic between the communities of Pasadena and Altadena on the east side of the reservoir and La Cañada Flintridge on the west side. An overview of the haul routes is shown in a video on the project website.
