The City of Glendale’s Public Works Department will be resuming construction of the SR-134/Glendale Avenue Interchange Modification Project during the first week of the New Year, beginning January 3, 2017. Throughout January and February 2017, crews will be working to rehabilitate existing street pavement on Monterey Road from Geneva Street to Verdugo Road, and on the SR-134 on/off ramps. Commuters can expect lane closures and increased traffic delays. However, at least one traffic lane will be open at all times during construction – on Monterey Road and on the SR-134 on/off ramps. After the completion of the project, traffic flow on Glendale Avenue and Monterey Road will improve, along with the service life and ride of the roadways.
Another feature of this project includes the installation of a bioswale at the northwest corner of Coronado Drive and Monterey Road. A bioswale is a landscape element that captures storm runoff water and infiltrates into the ground as plants and soil filter pollutants. These living storm water management facilities will improve water quality, reduce storm water flows, and provide habitats.
