Moreno Valley will spend $50 million to repave its streets.
The city council approved the move Tuesday as part of its first-quarter budget update, according to a statement on the city’s website.
This will be the largest public works project in Moreno Valley’s 37-year history.
“This investment in our infrastructure will ensure that our Moreno Valley streets will continue to be well-maintained and beautiful,” said Mayor Xystian Gutiérrez in the statement. “We are committed to maintaining our roads, and this allocation is a testament to our dedication.”
Funding will come from the American Rescue Plan Act, a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill signed by President Biden last year.
The Moreno Valley Pavement Rehabilitation Plan will condense nearly ten years of scheduled road work into roughly 18 months of construction. Work will begin later this year and is expected to be completed in June 2023, according to the statement.
Wonderful news for Moreno Valley residents who have long awaited the roads to be addressed. Our Mayor is always seeking ways to improve the quality of life for all in this city we call home !
Thank you for starting to fix these raggedy roads and it has been a long time coming.
