Residents and visitors of Pico Rivera who need to visit City Hall or the Sheriff’s Station should be aware of the ongoing construction project that affects parking and access to these facilities. The project, which began in early February and is expected to be completed in April, aims to improve the accessibility and safety of City Hall and City Hall West.
The construction project involves making various improvements to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), such as installing a wheelchair lift, railings, and curb-ramps, as well as renovating the restrooms, lobbies, paths-of-travel, and parking lots at both buildings. The project is funded by the Community Development Block Grant.
Due to the construction work, the parking lot entrance off of Passons Blvd. is the only way to access City Hall or the Sheriff’s Station. Visitors must exit through the Homebrook St. alley. City officials ask for cooperation and understanding from the public during this period.
City Hall outdoor services are available from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Many City Hall services are also available online at pico-rivera.org or by downloading the City’s app.
The construction project is part of a broader portfolio of plans and projects that the City of Pico Rivera is facilitating to cultivate a well-balanced, people-oriented, and vibrant place to thrive. Some of these projects include new parks, new developments, new businesses, new art, and plans to revitalize major corridors.
