Funding for this project is partially through Senate Bill 1 (SB 1), the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. This critical road improvement funding is allowing public agencies up and down the State to start catching up on the backlog of needed street improvements.  These projects also make significant improvements in California’s transportation infrastructure, mobility, employment picture and local economy. by making streets, roads and bridges safer, smoother and sustainable. Caltrans is also partially funding the improvements.   For more information on SB 1 projects and locations, visit Caltrans/CalSTA's website, Rebuilding CA.  For questions regarding the street rehabilitation projects, call Duarte City Hall at (626) 357-7931 Ext. 233.
