LA CRESCENTA — Foothill Boulevard will soon be getting a face lift after the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors voted last week to approve a road-resurfacing project between Pennsylvania Avenue and just past Briggs Avenue.
The Los Angeles Department of Public Works will be accepting bids in August for the project estimated to be between $575,000 and $650,000, according to Supervisor Mike Antonovich’s office.
“It won’t be a complete reconstruction. No medians added or new turnouts,” said Paul Novak, planning deputy for Antonovich.
All lanes of the roadway will be paved and new striping painted, under the planned project.
The project will be partially funded through voter-approved Propositions A and C, and administered by the county’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
Officials are also looking into a rubberized asphalt concrete grant through the California Integrated Waste Management Board.
Work on Foothill Boulevard is scheduled to start in October and be completed by November.
