Phase one of Moreno Valley’s $50 million pavement rehabilitation program is underway.
The project will repave nearly 190 miles of arterial, and neighborhood roads throughout the city, according to the statement on the city’s website.
Council members approved the project in February, and in June agreed to spend $29 million on its first phase.
Funding for the second phase is expected to be voted on in October. The project is being paid for with revenue from the American Rescue Plan Act, a $1.9 trillion stimulus package signed by President Biden in March 2021 to help with the pandemic recovery.
The pavement rehabilitation program is the largest public works undertaking in Moreno Valley’s 38-year history. It will condense 10 years of work into about 18 months, according to the statement.
