Palmdale Wins B.E.S.T. Project of the Year Award

According to the Antelope Valley Times, December 23, 2017, Palmdale won the B.E.S.T. (Building Excellence/Shaping Tomorrow) Project of the Year Award, from the American Public Works Association (APWA) Southern California Chapter, for its Avenue S Widening Phase II Improvement Project. The second phase of the Avenue S Widening project resulted in three vehicle lanes in each direction from 30th Street East to 45th Street East, which has significantly improved traffic flow during the busy morning and afternoon commutes. The city also constructed a dedicated bikeway on the south side of Avenue S for the length of the project, making it much easier for cyclists to commute without competing for space with vehicle traffic. Other improvements include a new traffic signal at the intersection of Avenue S and 45th Street East, modifications to three existing traffic signals, drainage facilities, street lights, raised medians, landscaping, modified signing and striping, and other miscellaneous improvements.
