Pre-construction activity is now underway at Sycamore Canyon Park to repair significant storm-related damage to a portion of the trail near the Diamond Bar Boulevard trailhead.
This activity, which began mid-April, has included clearing, grubbing, dirt and debris hauling as well as the demolition of concrete drains and relocation of the irrigation line in advance of grading work.
The $1 million project is anticipated to continue into the fall, and while involve repairing erosion damage on the slopes adjacent to the trail, as well as reconstruction of two sets of concrete staircases.
Since the damage was extensive, costly, and the result of a strong winter storm in January 2017, the City opted to follow the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Public Assistance approval process to seek reimbursement for repair expenses, and as a result the City will be getting reimbursed for 93 percent of the total project cost.
