4-day closure of Garey Avenue in Pomona starts Friday – Daily Bulletin

The railroad crossing at Garey Avenue in Pomona will be closed for four days beginning Friday, July 29, as work on Line L light rail extension continues.

The firm building the project, Kiewit-Parsons, will have crews replacing the existing Metrolink track and repaving the area. Work is scheduled to continue through Tuesday, Aug. 2, according to the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority.

The closure will include the Metrolink Station car park entrance on Garey Avenue. Access to the parking lot will remain open from Fulton Road and Arrow Highway to Pine Street.

The work will require a complete closure of Garey Avenue between Arrow Highway and Bonita Avenue, the Building Authority said in a news release. Towne Avenue will serve as the primary detour. Other detour options include Arrow Expressway and Bonita Avenue.

Vehicular and pedestrian access north and south of Garey Avenue within the closure zone will be monitored, officials said. Only residents and employees will be allowed.

Another crossing closure is expected later this year to complete reconstruction of the crossing for the new light rail system, the press release said.

The Building Authority is building a 9.1-mile stretch of the L Line (formerly the Gold Line) from Azusa to Pomona. Work began in July 2020 and the extension is scheduled to be completed as early as 2025. However, plans to extend the line to Claremont and along the county line to Montclair, are stuck from higher costs and lack of funds.
