Armendarez Securing Funding For San Antonio Heights Improvements

To help improve the quality of life for the unincorporated community of San Antonio Heights, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors approved more than $7.5 million in infrastructure improvements on Tuesday. The project includes over 20 linear miles of roadway and concrete work for sidewalks, ADA compliant curb ramps, curbs, gutters, guard railing and painting roadway traffic stripes.
“Road repair and safe walking routes for our families is a priority I will continue to champion,” said Second District County Supervisor Jesse Armendarez. “More than 20 miles of roads will be improved along with sidewalks, curbs and gutters.”
The project will be funded by Senate Bill 1, The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017. Senate Bill 1 was approved by the legislature and signed by the governor which invests $54 billion over the next decade. The funds are restricted specifically fixing roads, freeways, bridges and putting more dollars towards safety.
“We have a responsibility to ensure our unincorporated residents have safe routes to drive and walk,” Armendarez said.
The board approved an agreement with Calmex Engineering, Inc., a local company within San Bernardino County, to complete the project. It is anticipated the project will begin in February 2023 and be completed by end of July 2023.
