SAN DIMAS (CNS) – The Gladstone Street railroad crossing in San Dimas will be closed for three months, starting Friday, as part of a construction project to extend the Metro Gold Line, officials said today.
The reconstruction is part of a project to extend the Metro Gold Line to Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair.
The crossing will be closed to vehicle and pedestrian traffic during that time while crews relocate underground utilities, relocate the existing freight track, install two sets of light rail tracks, install a new safety and communication system, rebuild the street and other projects, Metro officials said.
Gladstone Street will be closed to pedestrian and vehicular traffic at the railroad crossing between Amelia and Lone Hill avenues.
Homes and businesses on both sides of the crossing will still be accessible. A detour route will be in place during the closure and signage will be posted.
Travel on Lone Hill Avenue, northbound and southbound, will remain open to “thru-traffic” and will serve as the main detour route, Metro stated.
Allen Avenue at Auto Centre Drive, eastbound and westbound, will remain open to thru-traffic. San Dimas Avenue, northbound and southbound, will remain open to thru-traffic.
Noise from construction equipment will be produced near the active work zones and bus stops may be temporarily relocated, Metro officials said.
