Hesperia City Council Approves $24 Million For Street Projects

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, June 22, 2020, The Hesperia City Council has approved the city’s 2020-21 capital improvement budget that includes $24 million in street projects throughout the city. Highlights of the budget that was approved June 16, 2020, include $4.2 million earmarked as part of the $36.3 million Ranchero Road Corridor Project. Construction on portions of the project are anticipated to begin in March 2021. The Ranchero Road Corridor Project consists of various improvements to Ranchero Road. Approximately five miles of Ranchero Road will be widened from two lanes to four lanes from Seventh Avenue to just east of Mariposa Road. The aqueduct crossing, Union Pacific Railroad crossing and three signalized intersections are included in the Ranchero Corridor Project; all are under separate project numbers with the exception of the railroad crossing. The street rehabilitation project will include maintenance and select full-depth reconstruction of a section of roadway on Main Street from C Avenue to I Avenue. The second component of this project includes rehabilitation in the form of slurry seal on Ranchero Road from Seventh to Danbury avenues. The expansion of the Park and Ride facility near Highway 395 and Joshua Street is also on the capital improvements list for fiscal 2020-21. The project is in the plan review process with Caltrans and city staff working on obtaining approved plans and an encroachment permit to advertise this project for construction. The estimated cost of the project is $858,344. Another project is the administrative work, earmarked at $50,000, associated with the paving of Sultana Street, a dirt road, between Escondido and Mariposa avenues, a distance of approximately 3,800 feet. Total cost of the project is estimated to be $3 million. It is anticipated that preliminary design work on the project will commence in fiscal 2021-22.
