(Victorville)—The City of Victorville, San Bernardino Associated Governments (SANBAG), and California Department of Transportation – District 8 will ceremoniously cut the ribbon for the opening of the new La Mesa/Nisqualli Interchange this Friday.
Hosted by Victorville Mayor Jim Cox, this open-to-the-public event will highlight the unveiling of this long-awaited transportation improvement to the High Desert.
“After years, even decades, of hard work towards delivering this project, it is so satisfying to see it finally become a reality,” said Victorville Mayor Pro Tem Ryan McEachron. “Collectively, we can all take pride in seeing the accomplishment of this once seemingly impossible mission.”
In December, the SANBAG Board of Directors awarded an approximately $31.8 million construction contract to Riverside Construction Company (Riverside, California). The project is being completed on-time and on-budget. The ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place on the eastern portion of the new interchange, near the Nisqualli Road and Mariposa Road intersection.
