(Victor Valley)– – The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors today approved an agreement with Apple Valley to share the cost of repaving Central Road.
“This is an example of two jurisdictions working together to maintain an important route for our local citizens, while also making the most efficient use of taxpayers’ dollars by doing this as a single project,” said First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt.
The project will repave Central Road between Poppy Road and Bear Valley Road, a distance of two miles, and will apply a pavement preservation treatment on Joshua Road between Las Tuna Drive and Bear Valley Road.
The estimated cost of the project is $285,000 with the Town of Apple Valley paying 60 percent and the County paying 40 percent of the Central Road project, and the Joshua Road project being split 50-50. The County’s total share will be $115,600, and the Town’s share will be $169,400.
The County approached the Town to participate in a cooperative project to improve the pavement on Central Road and Joshua Road because they share jurisdiction, and it is more efficient and cost effective to do a single project rather than two separate projects.
Central Road carries about 3,700 vehicles per day and Joshua Road carries nearly 1,000 vehicles per day.
Apple Valley will administer the design and construction of the project, and will also advertise for bids and award the construction contract.
