Knabe Announces Street Improvements in Rowland Heights

Supervisor Don Knabe announced today that numerous street landscaping improvements will soon be made to a busy Rowland Heights roadway. The announcement comes after the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the proposal today.

Under the plan, landscaping improvements will be made to Fairway Drive, between Walnut Drive and Colima Road. The estimated cost of the project is between $195,000 and $225,000. Funding will come from the County’s Fiscal Year 2005-06 Road Fund Budget. The project will include the reconstruction of the center medians, including the construction of colored concrete pavement, installation of an irrigation system and the planting of trees and shrubs.

It is important that we constantly upgrade and improve our streets and roadway infrastructure, said Knabe. This project is a perfect example of this commitment.

With today’s approval, the project now moves to the bid phase. Constructions bids are due back to the Department of Public Works by December 29th.
