City Conducts Major Street Repairs
Throughout Moreno Valley
The Citywide Pavement Rehabilitation Program is underway!

The City has started repaving 13 major streets and 34 local streets across Moreno Valley this month. The major streets include Alessandro Boulevard, Bay Avenue, Brodiaea Avenue, Cactus Avenue, Eucalyptus Avenue, Graham Street, Indian Street, Ironwood Avenue, John F Kennedy Drive, Kalma Avenue, Kitching Street, Lasselle Street, Morton Road, and Perris Boulevard. 

The repaving work includes applying slurry seal on moderately distressed streets, and removing and replacing surfaces of severely distressed streets. The project is funded by revenues generated by SB1 and the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG), and will be completed in early 2022.

For more information regarding the Pavement Rehabilitation Program, please contact the Public Works Capital Projects Division at 951.413.3130 or visit the Capital Projects webpage.
