Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.

Construction Update: Covina et al Street Improvement Project
Scheduled Work The City’s contractor Gentry Brothers Inc. is scheduled to place asphalt pavement (the final cap) on Saturday , December 18 from Arrow Highway to Cliffside Drive (reference image below) starting at 8:00 am through 5:00 pm.
Construction Impacts: One traffic lane will be maintained in each direction on Covina Blvd during final asphalt paving . Left turn vehicle traffic on Covina Blvd will be impacted during the scheduled paving. Access will be restricted at each drive approach for a short duration while the paving machine and crew places asphalt directly in front of each drive approach. Access will be maintained to all businesses. Sections of sidewalks and/or crosswalks will be closed to pedestrian traffic while remaining concrete work is being completed.
Large equipment will be utilized during this construction phase. Please plan for additional travel time due to construction and adhere to the temporary traffic control and signage.
For questions or concerns please contact the Public Works Department at (909) 394-6240 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Covina Boulevard et al Street Improvement Project will reconstruct approximately 325,000 square feet of pavement using approximately 9000 tons of asphalt concrete. The project will rehabilitate Covina Boulevard between Arrow Highway and the 57 freeway on/off ramps providing an aesthetically pleasing, smoother, and quieter street surface for many years. Along with the street rehabilitation the project will replace minor curb, gutter, sidewalk panels and corner ramp upgrades improving accessibility.
Construction is scheduled to start October 4, 2021 and is anticipated to take approximately three months to complete.
Where feasible this project uses environmentally friendly and cost-effective construction processes including Full-Depth-Reclamation (FDR) which recycles the existing asphalt concrete and underlying aggregate base/soil material. The existing pavement will be pulverized or crushed, mixed with cement, and rolled into a stronger sub-base; left to cure for up to five days per lane and closed to vehicle traffic. Following the cure time, the new asphalt concrete pavement shall be constructed.
The project cost is approximately $2 million and of that cost $600,000 is SB 1 Road Maintenance and Recovery Act of 2017 funded (Gas Tax). The new pavement’s estimated useful life is 20 to 25 years.
