City set to begin first phase of street resurfacing program
The City is set to begin the first phase of a comprehensive street resurfacing program Dec. 3, the first project under the Pavement Accelerated Repair Implementation Strategy (PARIS), approved by the City Council in September, and the Pavement Management Program, adopted by the City Council in March.
On Sept. 18, the City Council awarded a contract for construction of the first phase of the City of Redlands resurfacing program to All American Asphalt. The $2.46 million project is funded through funds from Measure I, a half-cent sales tax approved by San Bernardino County voters to fund local transportation projects, and the City’s Local Transportation Fund. No General Fund dollars will be used to fund this project. The City of Redlands Resurfacing Program, Phase 1 was designed and will be managed by the City of Redlands Municipal Utilities and Engineering Department.
