Apple Valley Town Council to approve a three-phased widening project for Yucca Loma Road

APPLE VALLEY, Calif. ( — Yucca Loma Road drivers will soon see improved traffic flows thanks to recent action by the Apple Valley Town Council to approve a three-phased widening project.

Phase one will reconstruct and widen Yucca Loma Road from one to two through lanes in each direction between Apple Valley Road and approximately 1,200 feet segment east of Apple Valley Road.

Construction is expected to begin this summer and be completed by the end of 2024, with an estimated cost of $1.5 million.

 “The Yucca Loma Road widening project is a crucial step in improving traffic flow and safety in the Apple Valley area as we see our Town continue to grow,” said Mayor Scott Nassif.

The Town completed design work in 2019 to widen Yucca Loma Road, from Apple Valley Road to Rincon Road, from two to four lanes, however, funding constraints prevented the project from moving forward to construction until now. 

The Town will utilize two sources of funding for phase one: San Bernardino County Transportation Authority’s Major Local Highway Program and revenues received from the Town’s Traffic Impact Fee, paid for by developers and builders for new development impacts.

Phase two will include improvements at the intersection of Yucca Loma Road and Rincon Road; phase three will require further study and design of Yucca Loma Road from Rincon Road to Navajo Road/Outer Highway 18. Both phases will be considered in the Town’s upcoming Fiscal Year 2024-25 Budget Plan.
