Moreno Valley has approved the second phase of its ongoing pavement rehabilitation program.
If all goes as planned, five years of road rehabilitation will be condensed into nine months, with construction expected to begin next year, according to a statement by the city.
The city council unanimously approved the second phase earlier this month.
“Phase Two will complete our historic Pavement Rehabilitation Program as scheduled … as we continue to build first-class roads throughout Moreno Valley,” said Mayor Yxstian Gutierrez in the statement.
In February, the city council approved the two-phase $50 million pavement rehabilitation program, which will take about 18 months to complete. Nearly 190 miles of roads throughout the city will be restored, making it the largest public works project in Moreno Valley’s 38-year history.
Phase One began last month. Both phases are expected take about a year and a half to finish.
Funding will come from the American Rescue Plan Act, according to the statement.
