Two-way traffic to return to South First Street

Alhambra City Council approved Monday changes to the traffic flow on First Street near Main Street. South First will change back to a two-way street between Main Street and Commonwealth Avenue and North First will become a one-way street between Main and Woodward Avenue.

The changes will accommodate the construction of a multilevel parking structure on First and Main and the resulting increase in traffic, according to Director of Administrative Services Martin Ray. Angled parking will also be removed from South First to give cars more space.

Second Street near Alhambra High School will remain a one-way street to divert more cars from Main and give students a safer way to cross, Ray said.

Construction of the parking structure will begin mid to late January 2014 and is scheduled to be completed in October.

Council also approved a contract with Zambelli Fireworks to provide pyrotechnics for Alhambra's Fourth of July celebration. The fireworks show is estimated to cost $24,000.

Weren't able to attend the meeting? You can watch it here. City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month on the second floor of City Hall. There will be no council meeting on Dec. 23.
