La Verne Street Closure: A St. at Railroad Crossing, Nov. 22, 2021- March 22, 2022

Construction Activity
Crews will be fully rebuilding the railroad crossing on A St. north of Arrow Hwy in the city of La Verne, as part of the 9.1-mile Foothill Gold Line light rail project. Construction activities include underground utility work, median construction, new track installation, roadway paving, new curb & gutter and the construction of the right turn pocket from westbound Arrow Hwy. to northbound A St. All of this work requires a full closure of A St. at the railroad crossing for approximately 4 months. NOTE: The duration of the closure is due to KPJV replacing a City of La Verne sewer line.
Monday, November 22, 2021 and continuing daily through March 22, 2022, A Street north of Arrow Highway, will be fully closed to all traffic (vehicular and pedestrian) at the railroad crossing 24 hours a day/7 days a week. Arrow Highway (just south of the crossing) and 2nd Street (north of the crossing) will remain open and accessible by way of detour routes, see map below. Crews plan to work daily from 6:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. Overnight work and Sunday shifts may also be required.
