Road Resurfacing Project In Whittier Receives County Funding

The County of Los Angeles will provide $200,000 in the form of Highways-Through-Cities funds to the City of Whittier for their resurfacing project on Lambert Road, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today.

The project, which is entirely in the City of Whittier, will resurface Lambert Road from Washington Boulevard to Leffingwell Road, and cost an estimated $1,800,000, of which $200,000 will be financed by the County. The funding for the County’s contribution is available from the Fourth Supervisorial District’s Road Construction Program in the Fiscal Year 2008-09 Road Fund Budget. The estimated completion date of the project is April 2009.

It is important that we constantly look for ways to improve the roads and increase motorist safety in our County, said Supervisor Knabe. By improving Lambert Road, both the residents of Whittier and the nearby unincorporated County areas that travel this route will benefit.
