PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale will begin installing a storm drain system at the intersection of Avenue S and 30th Street East on Monday, May 23. This will require the traffic signal at the intersection to be flashing red for approximately one week.
Delays along Avenue S are expected and various forms of traffic control will be in place throughout the project. Motorists are advised to use alternate routes.
The storm drain project is part of the Avenue S Widening Phase II (Capital Improvement Project 590), which was awarded to R.C. Becker & Son, Inc., of Santa Clarita at the Palmdale City Council meeting on December 2, 2015.
The Avenue S Widening Phase II Improvements will provide three lanes in each direction from 30th Street East to 45th Street East and construct a Class I Bikeway on the south side of Avenue S for the full length of the project.
The improvements will also include traffic signals, road widening, raised medians, signing and striping, street lights, minor drainage improvements, landscaping, and other right of way improvements.
During the course of construction, delays along Avenue S, from 30th to 45th Street East, will occur now through December 2016 or January 2017.
The cost of the entire project is $11.1 million and is funded from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) and city of Palmdale local funds.
Questions regarding the construction of the project should be directed to R.C. Becker & Son at 661-259-4845.
