The city of Wildomar completed its major road repairs Friday, Aug. 7.

Paid for by Senate Bill 1, commonly known as the “Gas Tax,” a $655,945 contract was made with the construction company All American Asphalt to oversee the project, which spanned 11 streets across the city.

The majority of the project was completed Friday, Aug. 7, while the final work is expected to wrap up by Monday, Aug. 31.

A low-cost, sustainable asphalt-rubber aggregate membrane has been used to construct several of the streets, which allowed for a quick and seamless project.

Dan York, assistant city manager expressed his gratitude to Wildomar citizens.

“Our community has been very patient on the status of our streets, and our council is aware of that.” York said.

The city decided to allocate all of the gas tax funding to construction projects and guaranteeing an annual amount dedicated to street repair.

The “Measure AA” 1% sales tax approved by residents in 2018 has allowed the city council to allocate $300,000 to additional repairs pending contractor bids.

“We’ll be opening bids Aug. 20, and we will award that contract in September,” York said.
