Avenue R Complete Streets & Safe Routes to School Project to Begin May 4

Construction work will begin on the Avenue R Complete Streets and Safe Routes to Schools project on Wednesday, May 4, which will bring needed improvements along Avenue R from Sierra Highway to 25th St. East.

The 13.3 million dollar, federally funded project will widen Avenue R, create walkable routes with sidewalks, install class II bike lanes, increase overall safety for all road users, improve signalized intersections, and will aesthetically enhance the corridor. Improvements will also be made at the intersection of Avenue R-4 and 11th St. East (the entrance to Tumbleweed Elementary School). 

Construction will take up to two years to complete and will be phased to limit road closures along Avenue R.  Motorists should expect traffic delays and are encouraged to use alternate routes. 

“The Avenue R corridor is one of our City’s main thoroughfares and these improvements have been a long time coming,” said Palmdale Mayor Steve Hofbauer. “We have worked hard to acquire the funds needed to bring it up to the standards in terms of safety, access, and function that our residents need and deserve.”
