Construction update: Cresta Avenue & Mount Vernon Drive

San Gabriel, it’s time for another construction update! In this briefing, we’re going to focus on the 2018 Accelerated I-Bank Project. For some context, the City Council approved the $975,472.30 project in October of this year to repave five sections of roadway. Today, we’ll be focusing on the work performed on Cresta Avenue between Las Tunas Drive and Hermosa Drive and Mount Vernon Drive north of Alhambra Road.

Let’s begin.

Cresta Avenue between Las Tunas Drive and Hermosa Drive

While major work has yet to begin on Cresta Avenue, construction crews have already completed ADA-compliant curb ramps at Las Tunas Drive and Hermosa Drive. Construction crews have also replaced damaged curb, gutter and sidewalk segments on Cresta Avenue.

Here’s a look at the reconstructed sidewalk ramp, which features a truncated-dome pad.

Mount Vernon Drive north of Alhambra Road

Major construction work has yet to begin on Mount Vernon Drive, however – like Cresta Avenue – construction crews have already completed ADA-compliant curb ramps on either end of the street, with work also performed on damaged curb, gutter and sidewalk segments.

Major work on Mount Vernon Drive will begin in January 2019.

As part of this project, Adelyn Drive between Mission Drive and Bradbury Drive, Pine Street between Las Tunas Drive and the north end, and Live Oak Street between Pine Street and San Gabriel Boulevard will also be undergoing pavement rehabilitation. To avoid impacting residents and travelers during the holiday, significant construction work on these roadways will resume after the New Year.
