Knabe Announces Economic Stimulus Funded Traffic Signal Project In Marina Del Rey

Supervisor Don Knabe, Chairman of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, announced approval of a $181,000 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funded traffic signal installation project to reduce traffic congestion and increase pedestrian safety in the unincorporated community of Marina del Rey. This is one of the first projects in Southern California to be funded under President Obama’s economic stimulus funding program.

The intersection where the new traffic signals will be installed is located at Admiralty Way at Marina City Club Drive in Marina del Rey. This project is one of 19 transportation infrastructure projects that the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works will be delivering throughout the County using over $46 million of ARRA funds. This project will be advertised for construction bids later this month.

ARRA is intended to not only save existing jobs and create new ones, but also to improve our local infrastructure with projects exactly like this one, said Supervisor Knabe. We will be using these stimulus funds not to grow government, but instead to grow our local businesses that we will be contracting with to complete these projects.

Public Works is actively seeking small businesses and community based enterprises to bid on contracts for this and future ARRA Stimulus projects. County businesses seeking more information regarding this and future ARRA Stimulus projects may visit the Public Works Business Outreach website at:
