The West Covina City Council, at their meeting of March 6, 2012, approved moving forward with a city street rehabilitation project that includes streets at various locations throughout the community.
The work will include repairing of damaged curbs, gutters and sidewalks. Also, included will be replacement of handicap ramps at various intersections in order to comply with ADA requirements.
The rehabilitation work will consist of grinding down roughly two inches of existing asphalt concrete pavement and providing asphalt concrete overlay, and installing new pavement markings. For a list of all the streets involved, and the sections to be rehabilitated, please contact the City of West Covina Public Works Department. Or, visit the city’s web site at www.westcovina.org.
Funding for this project will come from the following sources: Proposition C Transportation Tax, Gas Tax and Measure R.
Mayor Touhey commented, “The total length of streets, involved in these upcoming improvements, totals almost five miles and over one million square feet. The West Covina City Council considers the quality of our streets a priority and continues to move forward on these projects as funding becomes available.”
