Euclid Business Center (Bickmore)
The Euclid Industrial Park is an 18.6-acre, 360,000-square-foot development comprising of eight buildings at Bickmore Avenue and Euclid Avenue (CA-83). The largest building, of 206,118 square feet, will have a clear height of 36 feet; the rest, ranging from 13,050 to 49,640 square feet, will have 26-foot clear ceilings. As part of the Conditions of Approval, the developer is required to design and construct public improvements including, but not limited to storm drain, street, water and sewer in/on Bickmore and Euclid Avenues.
16003 Euclid Ave, Bldg 1, Chino, CA 91708
Intersection of Bickmore Avenue and Euclid Avenue.
Alere Property Group, LLC.
July 2019 - Alere received conditional Planning Commission approval for Euclid Business Center.
June 2021 - Chino reviews and approves project plans including many required public improvements.
October 2022 - Alere submits application requesting full closure of BIckmore from Euclid to Quality Way.
December 2022 - Alere requests a closure extension, Chino grants and notes extensions would only be given if reasonable effort is made.
January 2023 - Alere requests a closure extension to February 14, 2023, citing rain events and extensive groundwater encountered. Chino believes Alere had sufficient time to deal with these issues and should re-open Bickmore by the February deadline.
February 2023 - Alere fails to re-open Bickmore by the deadline and Chino begins assessing fines. Alere obtains a permit from Caltrans for improvements along Euclid.
March 2023 - Alere reopened Bickmore to a single eastbound lane. The project received approval from the City and Caltrans to modify the traffic control plan, including changes in the Caltrans right-of-way. Additionally, Caltrans has reactivated the signal movements on the Euclid Avenue / Bickmore Avenue intersection.
May 30, 2023 - Bickmore expected to open for two-way traffic.
UPDATE: It is anticipated that the ongoing closure of the Bickmore Avenue westbound lane may need to be extended beyond the initial estimate. Efforts are currently underway to assess the full extent of the required repairs, and as a result, a specific date for reopening cannot be provided at this time. (For more information, read the May 18 Update below.)
Through the end 2023 – Construction of sewer line will continue across Euclid Avenue at Bickmore requiring lane reductions on Euclid northbound and southbound with occasional turning restrictions on to and off Bickmore. At least one-lane will be open at all times and no further road closures are planned.
May 18 Update
A sinkhole has been discovered on the north side of the roadway, located approximately 400 feet west of the Quality Way intersection.
The sinkhole is situated along the alignment of an existing sewer main that was previously constructed as part of the adjacent industrial development on Quality Way (Altitude). City staff has taken immediate action by coordinating with the developer's team to conduct a comprehensive investigation and determine the necessary repairs for the roadway.

April 2023 Update
City staff and the Alere (developer) team have been collaborating closely to ensure the timely completion of all necessary work.
