Here’s an update on the Del Mar Avenue/Alhambra Wash Bridge Replacement Project since our groundbreaking this past March: The new access ramp to the San Gabriel Square Shopping Center on West Bencamp Street (just west of Del Mar Avenue) has been completed. A temporary traffic signal has been installed at the intersection of Del Mar Avenue and Bencamp.
In addition, the driveway into the shopping center on Del Mar Avenue will be closed while the bridge is under construction. Passenger vehicle traffic (no trucks) will be able to enter and exit the shopping center at Bencamp.
The temporary traffic signal will provide for smoother traffic flow on Del Mar Avenue. Commercial trucks are required to enter and exit the shopping center at the driveway located on Abbot Avenue (just south of Valley Boulevard). Passenger vehicle traffic (no trucks) are also able to enter and exit the shopping center at Valley Boulevard (between Abbot Avenue and Manley Drive).
