LOS ANGELES, September 7, 2010 – The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a project to resurface roadway pavement on Arroyo Drive, Dunton Drive and connected streets, in the unincorporated community of South Whittier, Supervisor Don Knabe announced today. The project is part of Los Angeles County’s continued efforts to improve infrastructure in the unincorporated areas.


“It is important that we look into ways to improve road quality and motorist safety throughout the County,” said Supervisor Knabe. “By making these improvements to Arroyo Drive and Dunton Drive, not only will the residents of South Whittier benefit, but so will the residents of neighboring cities and our other unincorporated communities who drive these routes every day.”


The total cost of the project is $1,279,853.36 and will be financed with State Proposition 1B funds and is included in the Fourth Supervisorial District’s Road Fund Budget. Construction is expected to begin this fall and will take approximately three months to complete.
