Citrus Avenue extension to open September 12

The completion of construction to extend Citrus Avenue to the Azusa Pacific University/ Citrus College Gold Line stop is projected for Sept. 12.

Rosedale Land Partners II Superintendent David Guthery said paving for the street was completed Aug. 22 and sidewalk work began Aug. 23 and will continue through Aug. 29.

“I’m still waiting on a date from our subcontractor for the asphalt grind and overlay out on the existing Foothill Boulevard and Citrus Avenue,” Guthery said. “Once that is complete then I can schedule the new striping and signage for the new intersection, which is a two day process, and then I can open the street.”

All dates may vary due to factors such as subcontractors, workloads and inspections but Guthery said he hopes to have the street done sooner.

He said he would also like to remind students that “Citrus Avenue is still closed at this time during construction for safety reasons from Foothill Boulevard to the Metro parking structure.”

Free shuttles leave from Foothill Transit stop 494 on Foothill Boulevard every 15 minutes from 6 a.m. till 10 p.m. every day to take passengers to the parking structure.

The Azusa Pacific University/ Citrus College Gold Line stop in the last out of six in the extension that opened in March.
