Street Improvement Project in Hesperia Receives Funding Approval

As mentioned in Victor Valley News Group, March 24, 2022, a recent omnibus approval in Congress secured $2,000,000 in funding for the Maple Avenue Street Improvement project, a much needed and highly anticipated project that will improve one of Hesperia’s busiest corridors. Hesperia continues to grow and develop as commercial and residential developers seek new opportunities in the High Desert.  This increase in development has highlighted the City’s increased need for additional infrastructure, specifically new corridors that run north to south and connect to the City’s east to west corridors. The street improvements will extend along Maple Avenue from Ranchero Road to Main Street.  The roadway, consistent with the City’s Circulation Plan, will be widened to five lanes which will include two travel lanes in each direction, a center turn-lane, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, widening of the California Aqueduct bridge, and traffic signals. The improvements associated with this project will alleviate congestion, improve air quality by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, reduce safety response times for emergency vehicles, provide improved connectivity for residents and business centers, create jobs, increase use of non-motorized transportation systems, and facilitate continued growth.
