Apple Valley starts on major intersection rebuild

Apple Valley has broken ground on the reconstruction of Apple Valley Road and Highway 18, one of the High Desert town’s busiest intersections.

The project will improve traffic flow and safety at the intersection, which accommodates approximately 46,000 vehicles a day, according to a statement on the town’s website.

Apple Valley officials wanted to rebuild the intersection in 2015 but ran out of money during the project’s final design. 

Plans include widening Highway 18 from four to six lanes, adding a second left-turn lane from westbound Highway 18 onto southbound Apple Valley Road, and realigning and widening Apple Valley Road.

Drainage systems will be refurbished, traffic signals replaced, and bike lanes and retaining walls added. Multiple agencies will be involved in the project, which is expected to be finished in late 2021.

The project, which will cost about $9.6 million, will be paid for by the town, county, and state, according to the statement.

That seems like a lot of money being wasted on widening an intersection i don’t know why they are spending so much money on that when there’s a huge homeless problem i think that the town of apple valley city council needs to involve the people of the town i tried to go to a meeting and was denied one of the council members told me to email them and they would contact me but it never happened probably because they don’t want opposition well that’s not me plus i tried to tell them about paraphernalia being sold in a lot of stores in town they don’t care about crystal meth pipes being sold as long as these shops pay taxes if the town council wants to talk to me my number is 1 760 684 0337 i will tell you what I think late
