Comprehensive Street Repair Project Nearing Completion
A comprehensive street repair project to overhaul 105 residential streets and six major thoroughfares across the City is nearing completion. The project also added nearly eight miles of bike lanes to provide residents with an even safer way to bike.

These repairs are partially funded by Senate Bill 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. This legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, bridges and freeways in communities across California and puts more dollars toward transit and safety.

Crews recently completed major repairs to six arterial streets and are in the process of painting lane markings on the newly renovated streets.

The project included rehabilitating:

  • Westbound Cactus Avenue, from Graham Street to Heacock Street

  • Alessandro Boulevard, from Elsworth Street to Frederick Street

  • Kitching Street, from Iris Avenue to Lurin Avenue

  • Eucalyptus Avenue, from Kitching Street to Lasselle Street

  • John F. Kennedy Drive, from Heacock Street to Indian Street

  • Iris Avenue, from Perris Boulevard to Kitching Street

Crews are continuing to slurry seal the selected residential streets to provide residents and visitors with smoother roads.

The repairs are expected to be completed over the next few months.
Coffee with a Cop Strengthens Community Relationships
Moreno Valley residents attended Coffee with a Cop on October 25 to meet their local police officers and learn more about how they keep our City safe.

This month's Coffee with a Cop was held at the Starbucks at Iris Avenue and Lasselle Street.

The event provided community members an opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns and enjoy a casual conversation with police officers, explorers and department volunteers.

Officer Del Real’s police motorcycle was the star of the event for children who climbed on the motorcycle to take pictures.
Hike to the Top: Box Springs Mountain
The City is hosting a free community hike to the “M” within Box Springs Mountain Reserve on Saturday, October 27 as the finale to the 2018 Hikes to the Top program.
