Beginning Monday, Jan. 20, Myrtle Avenue at the railroad crossing will be closed to through-traffic for approximately four months to allow crews to construct grade crossing improvements.
To prepare the street for the long-term closure, the Myrtle Ave/Duarte Rd Intersection will be closed nightly on Saturday, January 18 and Sunday, January 19, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday morning, January 20, Duarte Road will re-open to through-traffic; while Myrtle Ave will remain closed for four months at the railroad crossing (just north of Duarte Road).
Detour routes will be in place and signage will be posted to guide motorists and trucks (see above). Pedestrians will be provided a crossing area on one side of Myrtle Ave throughout this construction work.
