4-day closure planned for Fulton Road in La Verne and Pomona starting Friday – Daily Bulletin

The railroad crossing at Fulton Road in Pomona and La Verne will be closed for four days beginning Friday, July 22, while work continues to extend the Line L light rail in eastern Los Angeles County.

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 Monday, July 26, according to the Metro Gold Line Extension Construction Authority.

The closure will include the entrance to the Metrolink Station car park on Fulton Street. Access to the parking lot will remain open from Garey Avenue at Santa Fe Street in Pomona.

The work will require a full closure of Fulton Street between Arrow Expressway in Pomona and Bonita Avenue in La Verne, the Building Authority said in a news release. Garey Avenue will serve as the main detour. Other detour options include Arrow Expressway and Bonita Avenue.

Vehicular and pedestrian access to Fulton Road within the closure area will be monitored, as will access to First Street, Roosevelt Street and Brandt Street, officials said. Only residents and employees will be allowed.

Another closure on Fulton Street is expected later this year to complete overpass reconstruction and bridge construction, 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.
