Lynwood Kicks Off Major Street Repair
Wednesday morning was groundbreaking of sorts in Lynwood–specifically at the corner of Beechwood Street and Atlantic Avenue— where an extensive street repair project began.
City officials marked the occasion this morning on the project that includes Beechwood, Wright Road, Louise and Duncan Streets to start.
Streets will be closed to traffic only in the construction zones as the contractor advances. The streets will be secured to allow traffic flow by the end of the day. The project is expected to be completed in 70 days.
“There will be other street repair projects announced this summer as we work to improve the conditions of our roads,” said Lynwood Public Works Director Sal Mendez.
Lynwood Mayor Jose Solache is pleased that the work has begun and noted that the city has increased its budget for street repair for the next year.
“There is lots of work to do to repair our streets and we are working on addressing as many as possible each year,” he said.
