An estimated $2.2 million worth of repair work is set to begin on the streets of El Centro.
"We're really going to hit streets hard this year," said Steve Hogan, El Centro public works director, adding that for six months city staff has been identifying streets for repairs and consulting with local utility companies to ensure the streets are not dug up soon after repairs are made. He said the city has done work on more than 200 water valves to ensure the repaired roads will not be immediately dug up.
Some of the many city streets to be repaired include:
l Waterman Avenue, from Ross Avenue to Main Street
l Hamilton Avenue, from Imperial Avenue to Wilson Street, and from Wilson to 10th
l La Brucherie Road, from Ross to Orange Avenue
l Sixth Street, from Adams Avenue to Orange, and from Orange to Ross
l Dogwood Road, from Eighth Street to Danenberg Road
