Pomona selects option for future Hamilton Boulevard improvements

POMONA City Council members selected a proposed plan Monday night that will lead to construction of improvements at Hamilton Boulevard and the Union Pacific Railroad tracks.

Council members voted 6-1 in favor of an option presented by the Alameda Corridor East Construction Authority designed to address public safety in the area in preparation for future increases in the number of trains traveling through the neighborhood.

Council members selected an option that calls for keeping Hamilton Boulevard open to through traffic and adding improvements such as pedestrian crossing gates and fencing that will be both visually appealing and help guide pedestrians to the gates.

Similar improvements will be made at Park Avenue along with Main and Palomares streets, according to a city staff report.

The option the council selected will require the approval of other agencies including the railroad company and the San Gabriel Valley Council of Governments.
