Construction of the new bridge over Santa Anita Avenue for the railroad crossing of the Metro Gold Line is due to begin on May 1, 2013. This will impact traffic on Santa Anita Avenue with long-term lane closures during the day, and some full road closures overnight. Detours and closures will be posted. During the construction, local businesses will remain open and accessible. There will also be a closure of La Porte Street at Santa Anita Avenue during the construction. The bridge project is projected in phases with this first phase of construction being May-August 2013.
If you commute via Santa Anita Avenue, please consider using an alternate north-south roadway during construction to avoid delays and detours.
Metro also relays work is nearing completion on the new railroad bridge over Colorado Boulevard and the road is anticipated to reopen at the end of April 2013.
