City of Palmdale Begins Avenue S Widening Phase II Project


PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale has begun road construction work to widen Avenue S between 30th St. East to 45th St. East and is expected to continue through December 2016.

The project, Avenue S Widening Phase II (Capital Improvement Project 590), was awarded to the R.C. Becker & Son, Inc., of Santa Clarita at the Palmdale City Council meeting on December 2, 2015.

The Avenue S Widening Phase II Improvements will provide 3 lanes in each direction from 30th Street East to 45th Street East and construct a Class I Bikeway on the south side of Avenue S for the full length of the project. The improvements will also include traffic signals, road widening, raised medians, signing & striping, street lights, minor drainage improvements, landscaping, and other right of way improvements.

During the course of construction, delays along Avenue S from 30th Street East to 45th Street East will occur from mid-March through December 2016.

The cost of the project is $11.1 million and is funded from the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) and City of Palmdale local funds.
