After months of being closed in all four directions, the intersection at First Avenue and Santa Clara Street is open.
The intersection was closed or construction of Gold Line light rail tracks diagonally across the intersection from the northwest corner where a new train station is being built to the southeast corner where the tracks continue on to Azusa as part of an 11.5-mile extension to be open for riders in late 2016.
Separately, at Santa Anita Ave, crews completed the striping work on Santa Anita Ave on Thursday (March 13, 2014), opening the street now to full capacity. Over the next month-and-a-half, overhead work will continue on the bridge structure requiring periodic lane closures.
