From the Monrovia City Manager's weekly report:
After more than a year of focused design work for the 11.5-mile light rail extension, residents and businesses throughout Monrovia will begin to see construction for the "Alignment" work starting in late 2012. In November, crews are focusing on relocating utilities. Utility work has happened on Magnolia Avenue and Evergreen Avenue and is ongoing on Myrtle Avenue. This construction activity requires lane closures along Myrtle Avenue between Duarte Road and Railroad Avenue to accomplish this work. Construction on Myrtle Avenue is anticipated to be completed in mid-December 2012.
The Construction Authority continues to work closely with the city to coordinate work on city streets to minimize impacts as much as possible. However, you should be prepared that work is going to be impactful over the next few years of construction and we encourage you to sign up at www.foothillextension.org to receive construction notices. Notices will provide advanced warning of active construction locations.
