The County of Los Angeles will provide major financial support to a project to upgrade storm drains throughout the City of Rolling Hills Estates. That announcement was made today by Supervisor Don Knabe after a vote of support and approval by the Board of Supervisors.
The total cost of the project is estimated to be $900,000, most of which will be provided by the City of Rolling Hills Estates. The County’s financial contribution to the project will be $400,000, which will come from Supervisor Knabe’s Fourth District Road Construction Program. The repairs to storm drains are planned for portions of Palos Verdes Drive north, Hawthorne Boulevard and Silver Spur Road.
Even though the streets that will receive upgrades are entirely within the City of Rolling Hills Estates, state law grants permission to counties to financially assist in road improvement projects on specified streets that will benefit residents throughout the County. By improving the roadway along Palos Verdes Drive North, residents of the City of Rolling Hills and nearby unincorporated areas will also benefit.
