Adelanto Plans For Major Street & Water Improvements

Measure I money will be used for street and water improvements in Adelanto.Adelanto Major Street and Water Improvements

Adelanto City Council has had a good problem on their hands. Thanks to Measure I, they’ve had a significant amount of unused, undesignated funds that needed allocating.

Recently, they found a purpose for some of that money: improving city streets and water lines. They will pull almost $500,000 from Measure I to start funding changes at Highway 395 and Mojave Drive.

Adelanto’s major street and water improvements in this area were originally estimated at $3.7 million, but the actual cost came out to $4.1 million thanks to increased permit requirements and construction costs. In order to keep the project on track and make up the difference, the City Council has designated $447,523 of Measure I’s money to the project.

Re-designating this money is a bit of a gamble, as those improvements only become important if the Lewis Retail Centers’ Towne Center development at that intersection fills up. The Towne Center was originally projected to become the city’s second major retail center when it was first brought to the table in 2008, but it has had trouble finding a store to anchor the Center after Target pulled out of the agreement last year.

Lewis is arguing that these improvements are important either way, though. They say that over 50,000 cars pass through that intersection daily and that the population near the Center is projected to grow in the next few years.
