Weekly Rosemead Blvd Construction Advisory

Week of March 25, 2013

Rosemead Boulevard within Temple City limits—i.e., from Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) underpass to Callita Street.

Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

NOTE: To keep with the project schedule, construction may occasionally occur on weekends.

Continue demolition of east sidewalk from UPRR to Elm Street. Ongoing median work includes tree planting from UPRR to Broadway; and reconstruction from Broadway to Callita Street (i.e., planting, irrigation and concrete work).

Lane Closures: During reconstruction of the east sidewalk, northbound Rosemead Boulevard from UPRR to Elm Street will be reduced to one lane at all times. Pedestrian and driveway access will be limited, but never closed.

Other segments of Rosemead Boulevard—i.e., northbound from Elm to Callita streets, and southbound from Callita to UPRR—will continue to operate two open traffic lanes during peak traffic hours from 7-9 a.m., and one traffic lane during off-peak hours, 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Bus Service: During demolition and reconstruction of the east sidewalk between UPRR to Elm Street, existing bus shelters will be removed for replacement. Bus service will run as scheduled and riders should continue waiting on the sidewalk, remaining visible to bus drivers at all times.

Driveway Access: During sidewalk construction, businesses are open and driveways remain accessible.

Limited Access: Left-turns capacity from Las Tunas Drive eastbound onto Rosemead Boulevard northbound is now at one lane.

The northbound left-turn lane onto the frontage road at Pentland Avenue is closed until further notice. Drivers may still access the frontage road by traveling southbound on Rosemead Boulevard; northbound travelers should consider alternate routes.

No Parking: There is no parking on Rosemead Boulevard until further notice. Outer lanes are used as travel lanes to accommodate traffic flow. Those parking on the street and obstructing traffic may be ticketed and towed.

Residents directly affected 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.

Detours: No formal detours are planned, but scheduled lane closures may result in some traffic congestion. Commuters may want to consider alternate routes.

Enforcement: The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department is actively enforcing the construction area for speeding and unsafe driving. For your safety and that of others, please observe the reduced 30 mph speed limit. Per state law, fines for moving violations are doubled within construction zones.

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.

AM Radio Station: The City’s radio station, AM 1690, announces weekly construction updates and traffic advisories in English, Mandarin Cantonese and Spanish. Roadside electronic message boards will notify motorists of new broadcasts, typically aired Fridays or Mondays.

Trash Pick-Up: Regular trash pick-up will continue as scheduled during project construction. During sidewalk demolition and reconstruction, residents should continue placing garbage containers on the sidewalk and not in the streets.

To directly speak with a project representative, call the project hotline at (626) 476-7376 or e-mail Responses are provided within 24 hours.
