The city would love to hear from El Monte residents and users of Parkway Drive to provide increased safety, access, and comfort for all users of the road; people with disabilities, walking, biking, and/or using public transit. Please take a couple minutes to fill out the survey.
In 2007-2008 the City of El Monte installed speed bumps along Parkway Drive in response to ongoing street racing concerns. In 2015, students from Mountain View High School and community groups identified the need for improved street design for Parkway Drive that included better lighting, wayfinding signage, improved crosswalks, sidewalks, and bike lanes.
This project design and engineering process is an effort on behalf of The City of El Monte, Mayor, and City Council to create "complete streets" to support all users of the road. The City of El Monte is working with project partners Alta Planning and Design and Active San Gabriel Valley to develop a community driven design.
