APPLE VALLEY – The Town of Apple Valley began improving Navajo Road this week, beginning on Wednesday and will continue throughout most of the months of September and October. These enhancements are being made to enhance the accessibility and to extend the life of Navajo Road between Bear Valley Road and Highway 18.
On Wednesday motorists noticed the yellow detectable warning surface, also known as truncated domes on the curb ramps on Navajo Road. Additional truncated domes will be installed throughout the town as an added measure of safety for those visually impaired city officials said. The next portion of the improvements will to the storm drain inlet this week and will be just north of Ottawa Road. “The project will culminate in the complete resurfacing and restriping of the road,” Town officials said in a news release. “The construction schedule is planned to conclude in time for the popular Victor Valley Bicycle Tour on October 28.”
Businesses including schools, parks, and the Apple Valley School District offices will remain accessible at all times. Drivers should use caution when traveling the area.“Navajo Road is a significant arterial road and a critical part of our transportation network. These improvements will extend its lifespan and allow us to focus resources on residential areas,” said Town Engineer Brad Miller.
The $850,000 Navajo Road resurfacing project was paid for with Measure I funding, which is intended for these types of projects. For additional information contact the Engineering Department at (760) 240-7000 x7013.
