Phase I of Lynwood’s multi-million-dollar, citywide investment in street improvement projects has been completed!
The treatment known as slurry seal provides a new wearing surface of the road and protects it from sun and water damage. It is a maintenance treatment that prolongs the life of asphalt, which can save the City precious funds in the long-term. This work is important because a well-maintained system of streets is vital for our residents and businesses.
“Our city council has been very focused on improving our streets and roads in Lynwood,” said Lynwood City Manager Ernie Hernandez. “We are proud of our staff’s hard work and want our residents to know that this work will continue as we bring more of our infrastructure up to date.”
The first phase of the slurry seal improvement project included the following areas:
– From Cul-de-Sac North End to Agnes Ave.
– From State St. to Peach St.
– From E Monrovia Ave. to Long Beach Blvd.
– From Bullis Rd. to Muriel Dr.
– From Cortland St. to Agnes Ave.
– From Gertrude Dr. to Muriel Dr.
– From Muriel Dr. to Harris Ave.
– From Platt Ave. to Walnut Ave.
Please note that street repair by the Lynwood Public Works Department will continue as needed.
These projects are just a small percentage of the expected $20 million the city plans to spend to improve our streets.
