City of Hesperia Approves $3.2 Million to Repair 23 Miles of Streets

HESPERIA, Calif. (VVNG.com) — The City of Hesperia is set to begin a pavement rehabilitation project aimed at repairing approximately 23 miles of roadway throughout the city.

Scheduled to start at the end of June, the initiative is funded by federal Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) monies provided by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

This project will use rubberized chip and double chip seals, which offer a thicker and more waterproof asphalt coating compared to traditional slurry seals. The selected streets for this rehabilitation were identified using qualified census tracts, adhering to HUD’s specific guidelines.

The City of Hesperia is looking forward to making these vital improvements, which will enhance the infrastructure and contribute positively to the community.

“Improving our streets is one of the City’s greatest priorities,” said Mayor Larry Bird in a press release. “Making these much-needed repairs to several of our roads is part of our commitment to enhancing the infrastructure that connects our residents and visitors for safer, smoother travels.”

The streets included in the project were identified using qualified census tracts per HUD’s guidelines. This type of funding from HUD is specifically designated for road rehabilitation projects, requiring that selected streets not be severely deteriorated, not classified as arterials, and located in areas meeting HUD’s criteria for community development.

To accomplish the goal of improving more roads in Hesperia, the City has designated a larger amount of CDBG monies towards its CDBG Capital Fund, increasing necessary resources to address future street projects.
