Bradbury Road Widening

This page has up-to-date information on the Bradbury Road Widening Project.  

Project Description
The proposed Project would widen the existing Bradbury Road roadway from 24 feet to 36 feet providing one 18-foot lane in each direction, from Winding Oak Lane to Deodar Lane. The road widening would extend beyond the north side of the existing roadway limits of Wildrose Avenue and beyond the east side of the existing roadway limits of Bradbury Road. Existing roadway improvements along residences to the west (sidewalks, curbs, and gutters) would be maintained as part of the Project, however, the Project would include demolition of the existing roadway pavement, grading of the Project site, roadway paving, and roadway restriping. The Project would not require grading, demolition, or paving within the City of Monrovia.  The Project would be accommodated within existing City-owned right-of-way (ROW). Partial ROW was previously acquired from private property to the north (accessor’s parcel number [APN] 8527-026-025) and recorded with the County of Los Angeles. Grading would be required along the slope to the north side of Wildrose Avenue. Up to 46 trees could be removed as part of the grading activity. A permanent retaining wall would be constructed between the newly graded/widened roadway and the remaining slope area. The retaining wall would be approximately 320 feet in length and would range from 5 to 13 feet in height above the widened roadway.

Regular Meeting of the Bradbury City Council: 11/15/22
The Bradbury City Council will be discussing the Road Widening project at their regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, November 15, 2022 at 7pm.  An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) was prepared to evaluate the Project's potential impacts to the environment and outlined required mitigation measures to reduce the impacts of the project on the community.  The IS/MND has concluded its required public review period and is ready for acceptance by the City Council.  Plans and contract specifications have also been completed for the project with the exception of the specific type of retaining wall to be constructed along the north side of the roadway.   The City Council will consider approving the IS/MND, review the project's new total cost estimates, and review the new plans and specifics and authorize the City Engineer to advertise and receive bids.  The upcoming Agenda for the City Council meeting can been reviewed by clicking here.  It is item number 2 on the agenda and starts on page 36 of the linked PDF.

Notice of Intent

The Project is seeking an Encroachment Permit to widen the Bradbury Road (Wildrose Avenue) roadway from 24 feet to 36 feet, to provide one 18-foot wide lane in each direction, from Winding Oak Lane to Deodar Lane. The Project would be accommodated within existing, 53-foot, City-owned right-of-way (ROW).
