Commuters traveling through one of San Gabriel's most challenging intersections will soon see relief under an improvement plan approved by the City Council.
The City Council has awarded a contract to Sequel Contractors, Inc. for street improvements, construction of a right turn lane on Mission Road, and traffic signal upgrades. The contractor started work this week on the long-awaited project, and the project will be completed by the end of September 2017.
The work during the month of April includes curb, gutter, and pavement removal along the edges of the roadway. The contractor will also begin underground storm drain work. There will be lane and sidewalk detours on San Gabriel Blvd. between Fairview and Grand and on Mission Road between Pine and San Gabriel Blvd. at various times.
Electronic message signs, set on the roadways leading to the project, will keep motorists and pedestrians advised of the construction activities. Please follow the traffic control signs and delineators; and please reduce driving speeds while traveling through this area. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to create another Great Streets Improvement and raise the levels of safety and service on our streets.
