CVWD is notifying the community of upcoming asphalt repairs on Pennsylvania Avenue and the surrounding area due to a water main break on Sunday, Aug. 4.

Crescenta Valley Water District is hiring a paving contractor to repair the pavement damaged by the recent water main break. CVWD anticipates the work will begin on Aug. 21 between El Caminito Street and Stevens Street and then proceed south towards Los Olivos Lane. The temporary pavement repairs should be completed by Aug. 30 to restore traffic and parking access. A permanent pavement replacement will occur in November 2019.

CVWD’s paving contractor will be working with the City of Glendale and County of Los Angeles inspectors on the extent of the damage and there may be areas where the repairs will be more extensive than anticipated.

The paving contractor will be putting up temporary no parking signs, traffic cones and arrow boards along Pennsylvania Avenue between El Caminito Street and Los Olivos Lane. This will allow the contractor’s crew to work in a safe and expeditious manner to complete the project. Temporary No Parking signs will be posted a minimum of two (2) days before construction that shows the time limit (i.e. 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.) for no parking. Residents will be able to park in these areas during off hours if the area is safe.

The District asks residents to observe these signs and any other traffic control measures. Driveways within the construction zone may be temporarily restricted due to the repair work. CVWD’s on-site inspector and the contractor will assist these residents with access into and out of their driveways.

The first phase of the work will be Pennsylvania between El Caminito and Stevens and it will be re-opened to traffic after the pavement repair is completed. The second phase is from Stevens to Los Olivos and it will re-open to traffic after the pavement is repaired.

CVWD is aware that the repairs will create a certain amount of unavoidable public inconvenience. The cooperation of the community in making this project successful is greatly appreciated.
