Work crews are nearing the end of a months-long resurfacing project along a four-mile-long stretch of Orange Grove Boulevard in the city’s west end, but several weeks of construction still remain, officials said.
The project has been divided into two sections: One from Lake Avenue to the city’s western border, and the other between Sierra Madre Boulevard and Lake Avenue.
Work on the western portion of the roadway is nearly completed, with only pavement striping remaining, city officials said.
The resurfacing project between Lake Avenue and Sierra Madre Boulevard is more involved, as it also includes concrete work, such as the construction of curbs and ramps, city officials said in a written statement. It was initially slated for completion by Nov. 6, although the work may extend an additional two weeks or so, according to Assistant City Engineer Brent Maue.
“In this phase, access to residences and businesses will be maintained during this work. However, driveway access and parking may be temporarily restricted while concrete is being replaced,” the statement said. “No cars will be allowed to be parked on the street on the day-of posted for ‘No parking.’”
Signs will be posted on locations where it is required to replace concrete 48 hours before construction. Parking will be available on adjacent streets and will not be enforced.
Through traffic may be limited at times by the work, but residential traffic was not expected to be hindered.
Construction hours are 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays, with the possibility of work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays, with city approval, according to the city statement. No work is to be performed on Sundays or holidays.
Officials asked motorists in the area to obey posted “no parking” signs, not allow water to run on the newly resurfaced roadway, keep trash cans, and other items out of the no parking zones.
Some property owners may not be able to access their driveways for several days at a time, city officials said. They should have already been notified directly.
An inspector from the Pasadena Department of Public Works should be available on-site to answer questions or provide help, according to the statement. If an inspector cannot be found, questions may also be directed to All American Asphalt at (951) 736-7600 or the Department of Public Works at (626) 744-4268.
In case of an after-hours emergency, call the city’s Emergency Services Department at (626) 744-4241.
