This Friday, Aug. 22, beginning at 9 p.m., through Sunday, Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. the intersection of Mountain Ave. and Duarte Rd. will be closed to through-traffic to reconfigure the traffic lanes and prepare for the second phased closure. This work follows completion of the northern portion of the intersection, which included work on the new light rail at-grade street crossing at Mountain Ave, two months ahead of schedule.
On Sunday, August 24 at 9:00 p.m., the northern portion of the intersection at Mountain Ave and Duarte Rd will fully re-open, and one lane of traffic in each direction on Duarte Rd will be available. The southern portion of the intersection will be closed for approximately three months. Here are more details:
Sunday, August 24, 2014 at 9:00 p.m. thru November 2014: Mountain Ave will be closed to thru-traffic from the center of Duarte Rd south through the intersection. Duarte Rd will be open, one lane of traffic in each direction (see detour map below). The approximate three-month closure will be in place 24-hours per day, seven days per week, and will allow crews to realign the intersection to improve visibility for the traveling public and future trains, as well as install new storm drains, traffic signals, sidewalks and crosswalks. Crews will work extended work shifts from 6:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight, Monday - Friday, in order to expedite this work. Occasional work on weekends may be performed. Construction schedules are subject to change.
