PALMDALE – The city of Palmdale has been awarded $250,000 from the Southern California Association of Governments for the Avenue Q Corridor study, a plan that will provide guidelines for multi-modal access on Avenue Q from 20th Street East to Sierra Highway.
The funding is provided through SCAG’s Sustainable Communities Program for Regional Corridors. City staff will work with consultants from Toole Design to gather input from the community to draft the plan, which is anticipated to be completed in early 2022.
“This grant will help us greatly as we plan and prepare for the modes of transportation that are coming to Palmdale,” said Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “Public input will be key in helping us build a future for this corridor that works best for our community.”
“We truly have an exciting future in Palmdale, especially in the area of transportation,” said Palmdale City Manager J.J. Murphy. “A new airport, high-speed rail, High Desert Corridor and light rail are all part of what’s coming to our region. I commend our staff for all their hard work in securing this funding which will be used to improve transportation in our City.”

Hope there’ll be plenty of new bikeway paths for all those grown men, who pedal bicycles back and forth all day between their Section 8 housing and the liquor stores
Bicycle Transportation says
What nonsense is this you are writing? Bicycles are a mode of transportation, like cars, walking, buses, etc.

Its just how sad and true these comments can honestly be… Its years and years of the representation that palmdale stands for but we have to believe in hope. HOPE that people change for the better… I believe that the plans for future palmdale is on the right path… There has been a lot of focus on change for better. JUST maybe the people of palmsale doesn’t always have to rely on LA to make a decent living for their family… By creating new opportunities, jobs and focus here will keep family closer and not wasting it away in traffic to THE CITY DOWN BELOW…
SO, PALMDALE MAKE THE CHANGE FOR THE FUTURE AND HELP OUR FAMILY
… wonderful idea. But, not for Palmdale. We have a good idea what the place will inevitably look like, one year after Palmdale’s barrio brothers get through tagging it, shoplifting and looting it asunder, trashing the place out –
Drop dead stupid, this generation of juveniles are so petty, and so destructive, no sense whatsoever even trying to hand down anything nice, to them. Whatever we build, they’re going to burn it down –

That’s true. That’s why Trump should’ve deported all the illegals in this area and stopped all these immigrants (legal or illegal) from coming in and ruining the area.
Trump and Dennis... says
…sittin’ in a tree…
You know the rest.
I hope the City Manager is right about those things? They would sure be nice.
Otherwise, $250,000 sounds like just enough cash to line someone’s pockets.
Sorry, but, hence my name.

If it wasn’t for street projects the Mayor would have nothing to announce. Sad leadership
Hofbauer has to go says
Hey, the mayor said 2 sentences about the project. What more do you want from him?
Barry Black says
It was written for him, the PhonyFireman Mayor isn’t that bright.
