Rosemead Boulevard between Las Tunas Drive and the Union Pacific Railroad underpass (at the city’s southern limits).
Construction Hours: Mon., Jan. 28, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Tues., Jan. 29, 7 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.
Wed.– Fri., Jan. 30-Feb. 1, 7 a.m.- 3 p.m., 9 p.m.- 5:30 a.m.
Planned Activities: The project is scheduled to break ground Jan. 28 after being postponed by rain. Crews will demolish and remove the center median, and restripe traffic lanes to divert vehicles away from construction activities.
Anticipated Impacts: DAYTIME LANE CLOSURES: To allow for road restriping and demolition of the center median, there will be one traffic lane open in each direction during non-peak traffic hours, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Motorists traveling through the construction area can expect two traffic lanes open in each direction during peak traffic hours, 7-9 a.m. and 4-7 p.m.
NIGHT WORK AND LANE CLOSURES: The removal of street trees in the median spanning from Las Tunas to Broadway will occur Wednesday through Friday evenings, 9 p.m.-5:30 a.m. During this time, one lane of traffic will be open in each direction.
TRAFFIC ADVISORY: No formal detours are planned as the scheduled lane closures will result in minimal traffic disruption. When traveling through the construction area, drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are asked to be patient, proceed with caution, and obey flaggers and the law at all times.
NIGHT NOISE IMPACT: Residents living on the 5500-5700 blocks of Sultana Avenue may temporarily encounter evening and early morning construction noise resulting from median tree removal. Measures are in place to reduce noise from construction equipment. Crews will use noise dampening mufflers on chainsaws and chippers, and keep heavy equipment back-up alarms at a minimum.
Other Considerations: AM RADIO STATION: The City’s new radio station, AM 1690, will go live next week announcing weekly construction updates and traffic advisories. Motorists traveling the area will be notified by electronic message boards of new announcements, typically on Fridays or Mondays. The station will be trilingual in English, Mandarin and Spanish.
PARKING: No street parking on Rosemead Boulevard (excluding frontage roads) and within the construction area remains in effect until further notice. Those parking on the street and obstructing traffic may be ticketed and towed.
Residents directly impacted by no street parking – especially in the evening – can receive free, temporary overnight parking permits for use on adjacent side streets. Address verification through a utility bill, and proof of vehicle registration at the verified address, will be required for permit issuance. Permits may be obtained during normal business hours at City Hall, 9701 Las Tunas Dr. For more information, call (626) 285-2171, ext. 2333.
TRASH PICK-UP: Those who normally place garbage containers on the street for collection are instead asked to place them on the sidewalk or behind the curb. Regular trash pick-up will continue as scheduled during project construction.
More Info: To directly speak with a project representative, call the project hotline at (626) 476-7376 or e-mail email@example.com. Responses are provided within 24 hours.
