The Riverside County Board of Supervisors approved the plans and specifications for a North San Jacinto resurfacing project, and the supervisors’ 3-0 vote June 7 with Marion Ashley and John Tavaglione absent also authorized the advertisement for bids for a contract to perform the work in the Soboba Hot Springs area.
The resurfacing will cover 1,922 feet of San Jose Drive from Chabela Drive to the eastern portion of San Jose Drive, 1,082 feet of Granite View Drive from the western portion of San Jose Drive to the eastern portion of San Jose Drive, 370 feet of Chabela Drive from Soboba Road to San Jose Drive, and 270 feet of Las Palmas Court from San Jose Drive to the southern end of Las Palmas Court. Those roads have moderate damage generally associated with age and thermal effects.
In addition to resurfacing the roads to provide a smooth roadway, the asphalt concrete dike will be replaced, pavement markings will be replaced and raised pavement markings will be provided, and localized concrete curb and gutter work will also take place.
Gas tax revenue and Highway User Tax Account revenue derived from the sales tax on gasoline will fund the estimated $174,800 cost. The work is expected to begin during summer 2016 and be complete during fiscal year 2016-17.
