County to Improve Roads in Phelan and Oak Hills

El Centro and Escondido Map

(Best Syndication News) Several road projects in the Oak Hills and Phelan area have been approved by the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors. Most of the improvements will involve safety-enhancements.

Andy Silva, a spokesman for First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt, says they will add a left-hand turn pocket on Escondido Avenue at El Centro Road in the Oak Hills area near Hesperia. This project is east of the 15 Freeway.

The county will also fix irrigation problems at the intersection by constructing a box culvert. This should improve drainage and provide extra safety for travelers of the route between Main Street and Ranchero Road.

Working with County Service Area 70 Zone J, the county will also pave Fir Road. Mission Street and Perris Street will also get some concrete dikes and paving to improve the runoff from Escondido Avenue.

“Improving this highly traveled intersection will help traffic to flow more smoothly between the two communities and alleviate flooding on the surrounding streets and properties and flooding of the intersection,” said First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt.

The Escondido project will cost $1.4 million and is funded by the gas tax.

The county will also pave Caughlin Road from Phelan Road north of Smoke Tree Road. The area has been hit by flooding and the improvements should help alleviate some of the problems.

Besides paving 1.1 miles of road, the county will also construct some all-weather drainage facilities. The Caughlin Road project will cost $1.025 million and will be funded by Proposition 1B bond funds passed in 2006.
