Durfee Avenue will close to vehicular traffic at the railroad crossing north of Stephens Street to south of Walnut Avenue beginning on Monday, February 3, 2020. The road closure will allow for construction of a roadway underpass between Beverly Road and Whittier Boulevard and a new bridge to carry trains over the roadway. Upon completion, traffic congestion and potential collisions with trains will be eliminated. Motorists are encouraged to use Rosemead Boulevard as the recommended detour route for north-south traffic. Local access to residences and businesses will be maintained. Please use caution in the vicinity of construction activities.
