Major Construction Begins July 10: Full Closure of Gladstone Street at Railroad Crossing in San Dimas (July 10 – Sept. 30); Look Out for Construction Alerts in Your Inbox


Digital sign alerting residents of upcoming Gladstone Street closure

After months of preparations, coordination and design work, KPJV is now set to begin major construction on the Glendora to Pomona project next week. The first major construction activity will take place in San Dimas, as crews work to rebuild the railroad crossing at Gladstone Street. The activity was planned to begin in early August, but has been moved up at the request of the city to July 10. This activity will require a full closure of the street at the railroad crossing for vehicles and pedestrians for three months, while crews relocate underground utilities, relocate the freight track, install the light rail tracks, install new safety equipment to make the crossing safer for motorists and pedestrians once Gold Line service begins – and much more. Local access to homes, businesses, schools and medical facilities on Gladstone Street, east and west of the closure, will be maintained at all times.

Below is a video that highlights the last pre-construction activities currently underway to prepare the railroad crossing at Gladstone Street for next week’s closure, as well as other activities that occurred in June throughout the project corridor. Click here or below to watch.
