(SACRAMENTO) – Yesterday, Assemblymember Sabrina Cervantes (D-Corona) voted in favor of the Road Repair & Recovery Act of 2017. The bill provides $5.2 billion per year to repair and rebuild California’s streets and highways. About $427 million will be allocated for local transportation projects in Western Riverside County.
“For too long, the roads of Western Riverside County have been neglected,” Assemblymember Cervantes said. “But after aggressive negotiations with Governor Jerry Brown and legislative leadership, I am proud to have secured a fair share of road and infrastructure repair funds for our community. The decision we have made to invest in our infrastructure now will help us avoid having future generations shoulder an insurmountable financial burden.”
