Supervisor Perez Invites Thousand Palms Community to Mark Start of Road Repair Project
THOUSAND PALMS – Thousand Palms motorists can look forward to a smoother and safer commute, as a $588,000 road repair project begins construction next week.
Supervisor V. Manuel Perez and the Riverside County Transportation Department invite the Thousand Palms community to attend the Robert Road Resurfacing Project Groundbreaking Ceremony at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, April 4.
The ceremony will be held at the Thousand Palms Community Center in Thousand Palms, 31 189 Robert Rd.
“Due to its deterioration, Robert Road is among our county roads in sorest need of repair,” said Supervisor V. Manuel Perez. “It is one of the main entries into the Thousand Palms community, providing access to the school, park, community center, library and neighborhood. I am pleased this project will make a dramatic improvement for residents and visitors, making it easier and safer to travel while creating work and aiding our efforts to attract more businesses and jobs.”
The project will rehabilitate a quarter-mile segment of Robert Road from Ramon Road to La Canada Way in Thousand Palms. The work will include overlay of asphalt, installation of curb ramps and replacement of a damaged sidewalk. A portion of the roadway is in such deteriorated condition that it will be reconstructed as part of this project.
Construction will be performed by Matich Corporation of San Bernardino, and is expected to take one month to complete.
