Claremont commuters: avoid College Avenue tomorrow
College Avenue will be closed between Fourth and Sixth Streets tomorrow, February 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The city of Claremont is calling for the street closure as maintenance crews work to cleanup after a street vandalism earlier this month. College Avenue commuters awoke Monday morning, February 4, to find a makeshift crosswalk drawn across the roadway in white spray paint with the word “(s)troll” beckoning pedestrians across. The message remains emblazoned on the street, though campus safety officers have since blocked each side of the walkway to discourage pedestrians from using the fake crosswalk. Police have found the white spray paint can and will be dusting it for prints.
