VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — Work on the long-awaited La Mesa and Highway 395 intersection has resumed, officials said.
During Tuesday night’s city council meeting Victorville City Manager Keith C. Metzler briefly talked about the project.
“Finally making some good progress there, we have our signal poles set starting today and paving will probably be delayed with rain coming in tonight,” stated Metzler.
Earlier this year in April, VVNG reported work on the site had come to a halt pending Caltrans approval for the next phase of the project which included the installation of the traffic signal poles.
The La Mesa/US 395 project calls for the addition of .3 miles of new road in order to connect La Mesa Road with US 395, the addition of turn pockets on US 395, and the installation of a new traffic signal at the intersection of La Mesa Road and US 395.
The City Manager said the project is now moving forward with a fully functioning traffic signal expected to be completed in a few months.
