Monrovia Renewal replaces water lines
Contractors in Monrovia began replacing water lines on Monday in the Southwest and Southeast portions of the city (see map, left). City Manager Oliver Chi said that residents could expect restricted parking, partial street closures and water shut-offs this week.
Construction is part of the Monrovia Renewal project, which seeks to improve existing infrastructure around the city. Water line replacements will be worked on from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
Water service to residences and businesses could be shut off temporarily during work. Notice will be given 48 hours in advance of any service interruption. Chi asked concerned residents to contact the Public Works Division if this could endanger health or safety.
On Aug. 16, a contractor also began repairing sidewalks around the area. This operation is expected to take between five and six months. Crew members from Precision Concrete Cutting have been cutting pavement sections to reduce tripping hazards. Sewer enhancements were also begun last week.
Projected to be completed in 2020, Monrovia Renewal is the largest public works project that the City has ever undertaken, and is funded through a water and sewer rate increase. The next phase of construction will take place south of the I-210 and the northwest region of town.
