On the agenda: Traffic signal at New and Shorb

City Council will vote Monday whether to start the bidding process for a traffic signal at New Avenue and Shorb Street. The traffic signal is a joint project with the city of San Gabriel, which will reimburse Alhambra for 30 percent of the cost.

City staff recommended the traffic signal installation after an engineering review and study, which showed that the intersection met three of the nine thresholds for installing a traffic signal in the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, according to city staff.

A 17-year-old girl was hit by a car and killed at the intersection on July 15, 2011. San Gabriel Valley residents petitioned for LED pedestrian signs and reflectors a month after the accident. 

City Councilman Stephen Sham will also be sworn in Monday for a third term representing Alhambra's 1st District. 

Sham defeated challenger Eric Sunada in the Nov. 4 midterm election by 369 votes. Sham received 5,255 votes: 3,151 from local precincts and 2,104 from mail-in ballots, according to the Alhambra City Council agenda. Sunada received 4,886 votes: 3,318 from local precincts and 1,568 from mail-in ballots.

According to the City Council agenda, 11,191 Alhambra residents—32.3 percent of registered voters in the city—voted in the Nov. 4 election.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
